Morrissey Meets Johnny Marr, Billy Duffy in 'England Is Mine' Clip (Exclusive Video)

'Dunkirk' actor Jack Lowden portrays The Smiths frontman in Mark Gill's film.

Jack Lowden is a young Morrissey in The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive clip of England Is Mine.

The Dunkirk actor portrays the frontman of The Smiths in the Mark Gill film, which takes place long before his career takes off. In the music drama, Steven Patrick Morrissey is just a restless young man who dreams of escaping his working-class roots by being in a band. He soon finds a friend and confidant in Linder (Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay).

In the clip, Morrissey finds himself meeting a young Billy Duffy, who becomes the famed guitarist of The Cult. He also encounters Johnny Marr, with whom he later forms The Smiths.

Cleopatra Entertainment will release England Is Mine in select New York theaters on Aug. 25, followed by limited Los Angeles theaters on Sept. 1.
