British crime drama in which the diverging fortunes of a pair of friends threaten to destroy them both. After a long, hard struggle Vince (Freddie Connor) is finally going places. Set for promotion from a nightclub manager to his dream job overseeing a casino and due to be married to Nancy (Zoe Tapper), Vince is looking forward to the future. In contrast, his childhood friend, Bobby (Gordon Alexander), has failed to escape from the desperate world of drugs and gambling and now owes a huge amount of money to a casino. Unhappily for Vince, the casino Bobby owes money to happens to be run by his boss, East End gangster Dave (Jamie Foreman), putting Vince in a very awkward position indeed...
I watched this film last night after watching EastEnders and I really enjoyed it. I've always been a fan of independent films and this is an intelligent film. It's idea is not complicated at all but smart at the same time and here lies its strength to me: The Idea. It's about the characters in a world of nightclubs and all the possible possibilities in our life that people create and the biggest (bad or good) changes they make. With all low budget films the acting is poor but I felt the lead was good - Gordon is one to watch for the future! Danny-John Jules plays the crafty Phil and Jamie Foreman was mesmerising as always and perhaps carried the film on his own at times. Catch it if you can!
