Stoned, also known as The Wild and Wycked World of Brian Jones in the United Kingdom, is a 2005 film about Brian Jones, one of the founding members of The Rolling Stones. The film is a cinematic work of historical fiction, taking as its premise the idea that Jones was murdered by Frank Thorogood, a builder who had been hired to renovate and improve Jones's house Cotchford Farm in East Sussex, though there is a curious ghost-epilogue where Jones comes back to earth, to thank chauffeur/minder Tom Keylock - not Thorogood - for making him into an immortal martyr. The film also paints a picture of Jones's use of alcohol and drugs, and his relationships with Anita Pallenberg and Anna Wohlin. David Walliams from Little Britain featured in the film.
