Ents24 Rating


Genre: Drama / Thriller
Director: Steven Knight

The writer of Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promises tells another story about a conflicted individual. Here's hoping it turns out better than his previous directorial effort, standard Jason Statham beat-em-up Hummingbird. Star Tom Hardy is called upon to carry the film, as the story is based almost entirely around his character Ivan's solo car journey. Ivan is travelling from Birmingham to London to attend the birth of his child. He hopes that he is doing the right thing, but he has made mistakes; the expectant mother is a colleague he had an affair with, and he is leaving the most important building project of his career to be by her side. During the drive he has to deal with calls from increasingly worried contractors and the breakdown of his marriage.
