Close My Eyes (1991) reworks many of the themes from Stephen Poliakoff's stage play 'Hitting Town.' There's still the plot of a torrid, brother/sister love affair, but it includes the upheaval of the London Docklands development, the late 80s recession, and the AIDS scare, which had just emerged out into the open.

Clive Owen took time out from Chancer (1990) to make Close My Eyes (1991).
