Starring Eddie Marsan, Olivia Colman, and the brilliant Peter Mullan. Has Peter Mullan ever given a bad performance?

Written and directed by Paddy Considine. This is also Considine's directorial debut and for his first outing he doesn't put a foot wrong. It's working class, social realism in the vein of Alan Clarke and Mike Leigh (minus Leigh's quirkiness- there isn't much relief or humour within the movie) Considine does not believe in pulling any punches and it will most certainly leave you emotionally exhausted as the credits begin to roll, but, if you do decide to take the journey- you'll be strongly rewarded!

Considine also wrote(alone with Shane Meadows) Dead Man's Shoes which is another movie worth tracking down--

It also features this song on the soundtrack- never has a song complimented a movie so well:
