The Second Coming

Source http://www.flatpackfestival.org.uk/event/the-second-coming/

Following on from last year’s rare showing of Dennis Potter’s Son of Man, we return to Carr’s Lane Church for another unconventional screen Messiah. This time Christ arrives in present-day Manchester in the form of Blockbusters employee Steve (Christopher Eccleston), who discovers his divinity outside a pub and then after forty days on Saddleworth Moor commandeers the Man City ground as his pulpit. Though all of this could be played as satire, writer Russell T Davies and his terrific cast handle tricky territory with a warm and thought-provoking approach, combining humour and drama to speculate on the role spirituality plays in the internet age.
