Jack O’ Connell (Unbroken, Starred Up) plays a young British squaddie is caught behind enemy lines in bomb-torn Belfast, who has to navigate his way home while avoiding the competing attentions of rival IRA factions, dangerous loyalists and sinister secret agents.
Gregory Burke’s clever script steers free of political history to reimagine Belfast As a terrifying netherworld of impenetrable ambiguity, while debut director Yann Demange crafts an atmosphere of nocturnal menace to rival American cult classics The Warriors or Assault on Precinct 13. Winner of various international awards and nominated for two Baftas, Yann Demange’s riveting thriller is one of the most accomplished debut features in recent British cinema.
