This volume offers a detailed and comprehensive analysis of British film culture from 1997 to the present.

Using a wide range of films from the Blair era and beyond as case studies - from from "Notting Hill" (1999) and "Billy Elliot "(2000) to "28 Days Later" (2002) and "The Queen" (2006).

It examines the ways in which recent British film making might be regarded as distinctive, relevant and successful.
