Everyone wants something
Reader | Boca Raton, FL | 02/01/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great little british movie about ex-con/burgler who after prison stint tries to rebuild his life by working in a bakery. It would all be fine if his adult daughter is not married to a loser who owns a lot of money to a local loan shark. The loan shark is a tough guy with thugs working for him to beat up debtors and lawyers working to cover all of his legal angles. In spite of bein tough, he has his own weakness and debts to someone else, that no money can buy...

Then, of course there are lawyers. Sexy female lawyer shark, partner at the law firm who hires a young ex-lover to be her law partner. She uses her sexual power over him to make him do what she wants him to. He, one the other hand feels guilty for cheating on his young, unsuspecting wife who just gave birth to thir first child and his pro-bono client who happens to be the (anti)hero of this movie - our ex-con.

There is a police officer with a young boy in provate school, unable to provide enough money for his son's schooling and protection from a local public school bullies. His partner, sharp young black woman with almost no other friends in a police department is willing to do whatever it takes in order to preserve their partnership and friendship.

So when everyone owes something to someone in this crew of characters, can an ex-con get away with burglery, arson and murder? See this movie to find out and enjoy it along the way. I totally loved the music in the film."
