written by Simon Beaufoy (''Film/TheFullMonty'') and directed by Paddy Breathnach.



As it happens, this town is home to not one but two of the greatest hairstylists in Britain. Phil, played by Creator/AlanRickman, is running a basic barbershop with his teenage son; he left the competition circuit ten years ago and says he was in it ten years too long. The other is his ex-wife, played by Natasha Richardson, who left him for his model Sandra. They are running another salon called A Cut Above. Phil and Shelley have been divorced for ten years...

Meanwhile, the hotels are filling up. Teams from across Britain are piling in one by one with their impractically finacy models and styles. One team in particular is led by the ObviouslyEvil Raymond Robertson, an old rival of Phil's. His model, Christine, is also his estranged daughter visiting from America. She is a sweet girl with delusions of being a colorist.

The mayor of Keighley realizes abruptly that, while the town is hosting the national championship for Hairstyling, and while it is home for one of Britain's greatest hairstylists ever, there is no local team. The ex wants to enter because she has terminal cancer (though she divulges that on a strictly need-to-know basis) and might not get another chance; but Phil refuses. At first, his son also declines, since he will be fired if he enters; but then he learns Christine is competing, and so he changes his mind. A Cut Above has a team just before the entry deadline.

* ForgottenFirstMeeting: Brian Allen and Christina Roberts. They knew each other as very young children because their fathers were business partners. But then the partnership broke up, Christina's parents divorced (and she went to live with her mother in Michigan), Brian's parents divorced and he moved in with his dad in York, and the two lost touch with each other for twenty years. Cue the events of the film...
