Offender

Stars: Joe Cole, English Frank, Kimberley Nixon, Shaun Dooley, Tyson Oba | Written by Paul Van Carter | Directed by Ron Scalpello

Offender would lay claim to be the first film set against the ‘burning backdrop’ of the London riots. That would a slightly tenuous claim to be made, however, as the riots are ultimately rather incidental to the film’s narrative. Our ‘hero’ is Tommy, played by Joe Cole (no, not that Joe Cole – though hopefully he’ll one day star in a film alongside Ben Foster (this one, not that one) and Tom Cruise (this one, not that one) in a film about English nearly men). Tommy is a builder who goes out with probation officer Elsie (Fresh Meat’s Kimberley Nixon) and is going to have a little baby with her. Unfortunately, Elsie runs foul of some unpleasant young men who have been a robbin’ and a murderin’ during the riots. »
