Trespass Against Us 2015 15

99 mins United Kingdom Director. Adam Smith

Brendan Gleeson and Michael Fassbender are the rival heads of an anarchic crime family in this exhilarating crime drama. Set amid the unusual milieu of a Traveller community, Adam Smith’s film follows Chad Cutler (Michael Fassbender) as he begins to question the criminal path set out for him by the king of the caravan-dwelling clan, his father Colby (Brendan Gleeson). As the outlaws undertake a series of ever riskier robberies, Chad sees an opportunity to escape his destiny – but it will require a collision with his unrepentant father.

Director Adam Smith reunites with The Chemical Brothers following their feature-length concert film Don’t Think, and the result is as pulsating and adrenaline-fuelled as a high-tempo techno track (even if the Chemicals’ soundtrack is more orchestral than you’d expect). One of the most original British crime thrillers of recent years, Trespass Against Us boasts a pair of commanding performances from its two exalted leads.
