DOWN TERRACE (2009) [feature]

UK (MIFF 2010 , Night Shift)
Director: Ben Wheatley

“If The Sopranos had been cooked up by Mike Leigh instead of David Chase, the result might resemble Down Terrace.” - Cinematical

This black suburban comedy from director Ben Wheatley slickly marries family drama to crime-flick to produce a cross-genre gem.

Father-and-son gangster duo Bill and Karl, released from a four-month stint in a Brighton prison, settle back into a routine of drinking, pot-smoking and crime. But there's a snitch in their midst, and the dysfunctional family of thugs are set to explode with violence.

Brimming with menace, Down Terrace stars co-writer Robin Hill alongside his real-life wife and father, and features a chilling crime clan matriarch that puts Jacki Weaver's performance in Animal Kingdom to shame.
