Living as pariahs on the outskirts of Gloucestershire, three generations of Cutlers, the infamous family of professional criminals, spend their time planning the next heist and mocking the Police. Under Colby's wing, the family's patriarch, the one who pulls all the strings and the source of all evil, Chad the eldest son, finds himself wavering from his desire to live a quiet life with his wife and son away from crime and his fearful respect to his father. When Colby devises a plan targeting Lord Lieutenant's inestimable private collection of art, the Police will come after them hard and a life of bad decisions, violence and crime will begin to collapse, underlining the fact that Chad, his father's worthy son and heir needs to make his decisions fast. Will he attempt to oppose and break up the family, or will he spread wings and begin to live his new life? After all, you've only got one family.. Written by Nick Riganas

Excellent story about a family of travellers involved in crime
20 January 2017 | by BoristhemoggySee all my reviews

Firstly, this film is not about Gypsies or gangsters as has been said in some reviews, it's a story of a group of travelers, a very different set of people to gypsies and arguably not what popular opinion may define as gangsters.

It follows the Cutler family and some others who live in a semi-permanent camp and take to criminal deeds to make ends meet. The head of the family is Colby played brilliantly by Brendan Gleeson, and his son Chad played just as brilliantly by Michael Fassbender takes a lead role.

The story is nothing new or exciting, the group struggle to survive and Chad along with his girlfriend Kelly and their 2 kids is keen to break free form the life they lead and do better. The father and the rest of the group want group cohesion and value Chad as an important part of their group especially during criminal endeavours.

What sets it apart for me is that the acting is so superb from every single member of the cast that you really get to live the story and experience it. not even Georgie Smith who plays Tyson Cutler (Chad's son) nor Kacie Anderson who plays Chad's daughter put a foot wrong despite some scenes that could be difficult for kids.

I would not say as some do that I really felt sorry for Chad's family and routed for them, or that I despised them for being criminals. I didn't make that decision in my mind although I was sad at the mindsets that were portrayed: it's such a shame that people can live this way with no regard for the rest of society. That said I did enjoy the portrayal of the lives and lifestyles by competent actors that made me believe the story.

The only down side for me that prevented a 10 was the sometimes difficult filming, yet again this hand-held stuff that seems to be trendy to directors these days, but only serves to make us seasick and unable to focus on where the visuals are leading. I pray that one day some director will realize this is an awful way to film.

In a nutshell a decent story, fabulous acting and great direction means a thoroughly enjoyable evening watching this and an after taste that Michael Fassbender reminds me of the superlative that is Daniel Day Lewis.
