First-time writer/director Rowan Athale delivers a British crime thriller with a twist: the gangsters here aren't cunning cockneys but canny northerners. Our hero is ex-con Harvey (Luke Treadaway), and things aren't looking good for him. In the opening scene he's bloodied, back in a cell and being interrogated by world-weary detective Timothy Spall. A series of flashbacks in the style of
The Usual Suspects
follows, as we find out why this young pretender and his endearingly half-hearted partners-in-crime (
Iwan Rheon, Gerard Kearns and Matthew Lewis), dared to take on the local drug lord (a typically menacing Neil Maskell). The title refers to a sprawling council estate in Leeds, which, thanks to the brooding cinematography, wouldn't look out of place in a post-apocalypse blockbuster. The end result is a slick, satisfying debut.
A criminal under police interrogation openly admits his part in a robbery that ended in an attempted murder. He tells the inspector handling the case the story of how his reunion with three friends following his release from prison led to his part in the crime, and how their actions were driven by revenge. Crime drama, starring Luke Treadaway and Timothy Spall.
