Editorial Reviews

As Seen on BBC

"Warren Clarke is hangdog brilliant... in a stylish, nail-biting drama." - The People

"...this excellent [television drama]... gallops from the off." - The Evening Standard

"...good writing, good cast... a drama worth watching." - The Mirror

In the world of crime, nothing comes without a price.

Retired safecracker Geoff Dresner (Warren Clarke) thought his criminal past was behind him for good, but when his witless son-in-law (Martin Freeman) fails to repay a ruthless loan shark, violent threats force Geoff to take on one last job to protect his family - one last job that goes terribly wrong.

Caught between a desperate detective (Hugo Speer) who is determined to prove him guilty and an inexperienced young lawyer (Lee Williams) unequal to his defense, Geoff becomes both hostage and pawn in a tangled web of deceit and manipulation. As backroom deals conspire to threaten his freedom, Geoff must maneuver smartly in order to repay his debts - to his family, himself and society.

Starring: Warren Clarke (Dalziel and Pascoe), Martin Freeman (The Office), Hugo Speer (The Full Monty), Lee Williams (New Street Law), Orla Brady (Empire), Malcolm Storry (The Man Who Knew Too Little)

Format: DVD
Great little british movie about ex-con/burgler who after prison stint tries to rebuild his life by working in a bakery. It would all be fine if his adult daughter is not married to a loser who owns a lot of money to a local loan shark. The loan shark is a tough guy with thugs working for him to beat up debtors and lawyers working to cover all of his legal angles. In spite of bein tough, he has his own weakness and debts to someone else, that no money can buy...

Then, of course there are lawyers. Sexy female lawyer shark, partner at the law firm who hires a young ex-lover to be her law partner. She uses her sexual power over him to make him do what she wants him to. He, one the other hand feels guilty for cheating on his young, unsuspecting wife who just gave birth to thir first child and his pro-bono client who happens to be the (anti)hero of this movie - our ex-con.

There is a police officer with a young boy in provate school, unable to provide enough money for his son's schooling and protection from a local public school bullies. His partner, sharp young black woman with almost no other friends in a police department is willing to do whatever it takes in order to preserve their partnership and friendship.

So when everyone owes something to someone in this crew of characters, can an ex-con get away with burglery, arson and murder? See this movie to find out and enjoy it along the way. I totally loved the music in the film.
