    "At last a British comedy that`s really worth paying money to see." - Daily Mail
    Certificate: 12
    Running Time: 103 mins
    Retail Price: £19.99
    Release Date:

    Something strange is going on at HM Prison Long Rudford. The hard men of B wing are going soft. They`re putting on wigs and costumes and taking singing and dancing lessons. They`ve turned Thesp, for an awfully amateur production of the prison governor`s musical Nelson - The Musical. But all is not what it seems. Behind the theatrical posturing lies an elaborate escape plan. Ringleaders Jimmy (James Nesbitt) and Rudy (Lennie James) have come up what they consider a watertight scheme to coast their way to freedom.
    But all is not plain sailing when a romance blossoms between Jimmy and his co-star Annabel (Olivia Williams), the beautiful prisoner support officer, and the head of prison security Perry (Ron Cook) smells something fishy. Will it be curtains for Jimmy and his gang, or will they pull of the performance of their lives? And for Jimmy will the choice be love or liberty? Featuring a great British cast, Lucky Break is a hilarious and unpredictable romantic comedy from Peter Cattaneo, the director of The Full Monty.
