In July 1969, Rolling Stones founding member Brian Jones was found dead in his swimming pool, at a house that once belonged to Winnie the Pooh creator A.A. Milne. This movie documents the last three months of Jones' life, as well as his business relationship with builder Frank Thorogood, hired to renovate the place after having done work for Keith Richards. On his deathbed, Thorogood (played by Paddy Considine) apparently confessed to murdering Jones (Leo Gregory), but the movie doesn't give us much of a clue why. Yes, Jones as depicted here is thoroughly unlikable -- an arrogant rocker far less important than he thinks he his, and contemptuous of all others. But Thorogood could have left Jones' company at any time and chose not to; Considine and director Stephen Woolley (a regular producer on Neil Jordan's films) fail to make it clear what would have pushed him over the edge. As Jones' dream girl Anita Pallenberg, Monet Mazur undoubtedly draws on her own firsthand experience with Dave Navarro's junkie years.
