Storyline

From cult director Alex Cox (Repo Man; Sid and Nancy) comes this modernised adaptation of Thomas Middleton's celebrated play from 1607. It tells the story of a man whose wife is murdered on their wedding day and his desire to exact revenge on the murderer. Set in a post-apocalyptic Liverpool of the future, Vindici (Christopher Eccleston - Let Him have It; Elizabeth; 28 Days Later; Tv's Dr Who) returns from a self-imposed exile to bring down those responsible for his wife's murder. While his family have fallen on hard times, the murderer - known as The Duke (Derek Jacobi - Day of the Jackal; Gosford Park; Tv's- I Claudius) - has become rich, p Written by Anonymous

Quite simply, loved this!! Very theatrical without being too pompous, reminded me a lot of Titus (Very similar, original dialogue with sprinklings of contemporary dialogue, theatrical asides, and some brilliant anachronisms) All accomplished with great acting, the whole cast deserves equal credit.

Based on a very "meaty" story, They say that Revenge is a dish best served cold, but this is a film that'll warm the hearts of any film fan! Go see...
