Storyline

Johnny Flynton is good at one thing: boxing. He's not too bright, and there's clearly some issues in his past, but what's worse, when he's boxing, his temper flares up. His wife, Samantha, tells him she's pregnant. Meanwhile, he's got an exhibition match with local boy Artie Duane. Johnny lets him get a few punches in to look good, but when Artie starts taking cheap shots, Johnny can't stand by and overreacts. He runs home, where he's in high spirits, but that proves his downfall. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Brilliant!
14 July 2003 | by tagitrishaSee all my reviews

Johnny Flynton is the most brilliant film I have ever seen. I saw it during a short film festival in Los Angeles and was completely blown away. I can't wait for the feature length version to come out. Even though it was only 35 minutes long I felt as if I knew and understood each character and had insight into their life experiences. The mastery with which this film was made is stunning. It is exciting to think what these brilliant young filmmakers will do next.
