Matty Burton (Considine) is a middleweight boxing champion. Nearing the end of his career, he needs to make money before he gets out of the game to secure a home and future for his wife Emma (Jodie Whittaker) and their baby daughter. Facing a brash, controversy-courting opponent in his final bout, Matty suffers a serious injury and awaking from a coma finds himself taking on the greatest challenge of his life. A valuable British addition to the boxing movie genre, Considine’s second feature as director retains the integrity and realism of Tyrannosaur.
We will be joined by director and actor Paddy Considine for a Q&A following this preview screening on Wed 28 Mar, 2018.
