Movie Info

Hot shot Premiership footballer Jerome seems to have it all - a luxury flat, a fast car, any girl he wants, and a booming career. A vast contrast to the council estate life he left behind. Following a run-in with his old estate crew, his world is turned upside down as he gets caught up in the gangland ways his friends still pursue, and before long finds himself being blackmailed by the dealers, crooks and dropouts he used to hang around with. Adding to this is his younger brother Anton, who finds himself seduced by this attractive yet dangerous lifestyle. With no easy way out, Jerome must make some impossible decisions that will have an irreversible impact on his life and career forever.more

Adam Deacon, winner of the Bafta Rising Star Award, explores the nightmarish condition of fame, starring as a Premiership footballer who finds himself used as a cashpoint by former homies, and having his privacy invaded by scandal-sniffing tabloids.

Daily Telegraph

Poorly directed and often excruciating to watch, this is a painfully pedestrian British drama with a simplistic, finger-wagging script and an awkward central performance from BAFTA Rising Star Adam Deacon.
