Our Score
A tough but troubled businessman is forced to deal with the chip on his shoulder when he learns his father is dying. Returning to Liverpool and his roots, he decides to take revenge on the teenager who attacked his father. An adult drama about class in Britain, held together with a muscular performance from Williamson as the dislikeable hero, it's by the same team that made The Bofors Gun the year before. This is no Room at the Top, but it's well handled nonetheless.


On returning to his Liverpool home, a ruthless London businessman vows revenge on those responsible for killing his father in a pub brawl, but faces an even greater challenge when he arrives back in the capital as rivals attempt to take over his business. Drama, starring Nicol Williamson, Rachel Roberts and Paul Rogers.
