Content Type: Movie
Originally screened on BBC 1 in July over five consecutive evenings, the compelling drama centres on Ben Coulter (Ben Whishaw) a normal 21 year old who, after one mad night finds his life changed forever. An encounter with a wild and sexy young woman finds Ben arrested for murder and his world completely torn apart.
The programme stars a wealth of British acting talent including rising star Whishaw (Perfume: The Story Of A Murderer, Brideshead Revisited) alongside acting legends Pete Postlethwaite, (The Usual Suspects, In The Name Of The Father), Lindsay Duncan (A Year In Provence, Mansfield Park), David Harewood (Blood Diamond, The Merchant Of Venice), Con O'Neill (Learners, The History Of Tom Jones: A Foundling) and Bill Paterson (The Killing Fields, Bright Young Things).
Unable to remember the majority of his extraordinary night, Ben is denied bail and sent to prison to await his trial. His naivety proves to be a weakness in amongst the killers, drug dealers and other vicious criminals. Who can he trust, the plain speaking Hooch (Postlethwaite) the charismatically sinister Freddie Graham (Harewood) or his sympathetic lawyer Stone (O'Neill)?
Written by former lawyer turned respected screenwriter and playwright Peter Moffat (Kavanagh QC, Macbeth - ShakespeaRe-Told) the fantastic drama follows Ben on a rollercoaster ride through the criminal justice system where the truth is marginalised and playing the game is the only thing that matters.
