“David Leon’s subversion of the classic sports drama is refreshing” The Upcoming
London’s criminal underbelly and Haredi Jewish community collide in this compelling debut feature from British director David Leon. Ben is a struggling kosher butcher by day and a successful backstreet boxer by night, but his luck is running out. Money becomes increasingly scarce, forcing him to resort to desperate and dangerous measures. Outstanding, nuanced performances from Stephen Graham (Ben) and Rebecca Callard (his wife) are at the heart of this disturbingly bleak portrait of disintegrating urban lives.
