Dir Antonia Bird
With Robert Carlyle, Ray Winstone, Damon Albarn, Lena Headey
After the phenomenal success of Trainspotting Robert Carlyle became a leading man – working here with his friend and collaborator, the late and much-missed director Antonia Bird. In a fascinating twist on the heist genre, Carlyle plays ex-socialist Ray – disillusioned with politics and turning to crime with a high-stakes security robbery. A fine ensemble cast round out one of the most intriguing moments in 1990s British film.
