Down Terrace


United Kingdom 2009, 90 mins
Director: Ben Wheatley
Starring: David Schaal, Julia Deakin, Robin Hill

Set to become an instant British gangster classic, the award-winning DOWN TERRACE is the startling debut film from Ben Wheatley.

Providing the perfect blend of cold-blooded thrills and wicked humour, it breathes new life into the crime genre.

Taking the best elements of The Sopranos and giving them a very British twist, the film focuses on the kind of issues faced by all families.

Such as who grassed up son Karl (Robin Hill) to the local police? How will dad Bill (Robert Hill) explain the recent drop in profits to his bosses in London? Can Uncle Eric (Schaal) dispose of a body without making a mess of it again? And what should mum Maggie (Spaced's Julia Deakin) make for tea? .
