The tragic and controversial story of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was executed in Texas for killing his three children after scientific evidence and expert testimony that bolstered his claims of innocence were suppressed.
Set after the 2012 London Olympics, the film follows Liam (Sam Claflin), an ex-con trying to win back the love and trust of his family. He has lost everything at the hands of a local crime syndicate run by Clifford Cullen (Spall), who has high-level connections in politics, finance and the police force. Liam's drive for redemption sees him caught up in a web of conspiracy, crime, and corruption.
They basically held up flashing signs in bold saying these are the bad guys throughout so it was quite predictable but at the same time it was still entertaining and enjoyable even if most of the big twists you could see from a mile off. If you like other British gangster films you'll almost certainly enjoy this.
