After spending 12 years behind bars for keeping his mouth shut, the notorious safecracker Dom Hemingway is back on the streets of London and looking to collect what he’s owed.
The endlessly vulgar and volatile Dom (Jude Law, Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley) travels with his best friend Dickie (Richard E. Grant, Gosford Park, Withnail & I) to the south of France to see his old crime boss. Before long, Dom is involved with a femme fatale, a car accident and a betrayal, and decides it’s time to rethink his priorities.
However, when he tries to reconnect with his long-lost daughter Evelyn (Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones), Dom finds himself sucked back into the underworld and doing what he really does best – ruining everything.
Direct from this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, this funny, profane and hugely entertaining gangster flick from director Richard Shepard (The Matador, The Hunting Party) is in the UK tradition of Sexy Beast. Driven by Jude Law’s brilliant, outrageous performance as the ultimate laddish crim, it’s cracking good fun.
