He's got Family, he's got Power...but he's got Issues!
In a crime family saga set in 1984 and spanning 10 years, The Take stars Tom Hardy (RocknRolla, Bronson) as violent gangster Freddie Jackson and Brian Cox (Troy, The Bourne Supremacy) as devious crime boss Ozzy. Just released from a 4-year stretch in jail, Freddie is now a free man who plans to take the London criminal world by storm. As he lunges into a psychotic rampage of murder and betrayal, his wife Jackie (Kierston Wareing - Fish Tank) becomes increasingly unstable, made worse by the actions of her sister Maggie (Charlotte Riley - Wuthering Heights) who is in love with Freddie's cousin, Jimmy (Shaun Evans - The Situation). If you are a Jackson, then trust no one, because everybody is on The Take in this exciting, uncompromising adaptation of the bestselling crime thriller by Martina Cole.
