Filmed over eight days entirely on location in Brighton, the directorial feature debut of Brighton-based Ben Wheatley follows crime boss Karl, whose quest to sniff out the rat who betrayed him escalates into a cycle of recrimination and murder. Co-written by Wheatley and Robin Hill, who stars with his father Robert Hill and Julia Deakin, this is a potent blend of cold-blooded thrills and wicked humour that takes the best elements of The Sopranos and gives them a very British twist. Subject to his schedule, Ben Wheatley will be introducing the screening.
