NOT your av­er­age mu­sic biopic, this story tracks the he roller­coaster ca­reer of Sun­ny­boys front­man Jeremy Ox­ley ey ( pic­tured) and his par­al­lel jour­ney with schizophre­nia. It’s one e of the most hon­est examinations of men­tal ill­ness – the des­per­a­tion ation of Ox­ley to dis­tance him­self from the di­ag­no­sis, his para­noia a about those work­ing around him in the in­dus­try which hailed his s ge­nius and strug­gles with his own demons and, most sig­nif­i­cantly, ntly, the re­la­tion­ship with his brother and band mate Peter, who be­came e both the tar­get of Ox­ley’s delu­sions and the man he fi­nally turned to for help.
