Marina Antunes [Celluloid 11.23.17] United Kingdom drama

Paddy Considine has been a familiar face in front of the camera for nearly two decades but in 2011, Considine moved behind the camera to direct Peter Mullan in one of his best roles: Tyrannosaur in which he stars as a violent man given a second chance. It's a dark and brutal movie with outstanding performances from both Mullan and Olivia Colman, both great talents who really shine under Considine's direction.

For his follow-up as director, Considine is also appearing in front of the camera alongside Jodie Whittaker in Journeyman. Considine plays Matty Burton, a boxer who suffers a serious head injury during a fight which leaves him with no memory of his previous life and limited control over his body. The movie unfolds mostly in the aftermath of the injury with a focus on the impact it has on his life.

Considine isn't one to shy away from difficult subject matter both in front and behind the camera so I expect Journeyman will tackle the ongoing conversation of sports violence but the movie also looks like an intimate drama of how a family deals with tragedy.

Journeyman is scheduled for UK release on February 16, 2018. No news yet on a North American release.

Recommended Release: Tyrannosaur
