Douglas 'Arm' Armstrong has become the feared enforcer for the drug-dealing Devers family, whilst also trying to be a good father. Torn between these two families, Arm's loyalties are tested when he is asked to kill for the first time.
When Cecilia's abusive ex takes his own life and leaves her his fortune, she suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of coincidences turn lethal, Cecilia works to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
Only 7 people in the cinema today. Can't think why. Anyone would think there was a global pandemic on our something.
Misbehavior was pretty good. It's basically the true story of the Miss World protest that inspired the peerless Cary on Girls (who said protest doesn't achieve anything.)
Was worried that it might be a bit po faced and humourless, but it was actually pretty funny, and very entertaining. Rhys Ifans unleashed his inner Sid James, Kelley Hawes was very nearly as good as Joan Simms as his wife, and Kiera Knightly was good in the June Whitfield part, although you can't beat the original.
The subplot about the two black women, one of whom was the first from South Africa and the other one the first black woman to win Miss World, was actually pretty lovely, and very well done. It's worth seeing the film for that alone.
Only real weak spot was Greg Kinnear as Bob Hope. Not sure if it was him being bad, or the fact that Bob Hope was a bit crap, really, and he captured that perfectly.
Worth seeing. Even if it does have a huge Bernard Bresslaw in a frock shaped hole.
