Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Nicol Williamson delivers a powerhouse performance in this incisive McGrath-scripted drama of a ruthless London sales executive who returns to his native Liverpool to find that his father has died after suffering a brutal beating. The dirty office politics of the posh business world and the rough-and-tumble energy of the Liverpool slums are both captured with great panache by director Jack Gold and a fine cast in this neglected gem.
