Product Description

Product Description

Multi-award-winning writer Jimmy McGovern's brand new film based on the UK's controversial joint enterprise law. 17-year-old Johnjo (Nico Mirallegro) gives his cousin Tony and his mates Colin and Kieran a last minute lift in his brother Patrick's car. They tell him they're going for pizza; Johnjo doesn't know that they're going to 'have a word' with a local loudmouth who needs putting in his place. As Johnjo waits in the car, Kieran takes offence with an innocent bystander, Thomas Ward, who is fatally stabbed. The murder victim is the eldest child of Margaret (Susan Lynch) and Tommy Ward (Daniel Mays), who has become estranged from his family after a bitter divorce. Struggling to make ends meet on her own, Margaret is nevertheless determined to fight through bureaucracy and the cool indifference of the banks to give Thomas the send-off he deserves. Johnjo makes his own way to the police station and asks for DI Hastings (Robert Pugh). A career copper used to doing battle with 'no comment', Hastings can't believe his luck as Johnjo lays the blame squarely with Kieran. But Hastings wants everyone possible to be tried for murder, and with the joint enterprise doctrine at his disposal, that includes Johnjo. Also starring Jodhi May, Michelle Fairley and Sir Michael Gambon.

By Dr. Paul Ell HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 Oct. 2015
Format: Amazon Video
Excellent film which illustrates a failed law and the dangers it results in. I hadn't heard of 'Joint Enterprise' before but am well aware of it now. Well acted, gritty with suitable cinematography to match, not a fun film but one that leaves a lasting memory. Recommended.

This film shows in gritty, tragic detail how flawed & wickedly unjust our Justice System can be sometimes. Watch it and be scared; it could be you or me. Emotional, real and brilliantly filmed and factually relevant.

If anybody wants an idea of how joint enterprise is used in the real world then this is a must see. Very well written without over dramatising the main points. If you just want a good film then its that as well.

The film is very good but the quality of the DVD is poor. It crackles all of the way through and there are lines running through the recording.

Nico was excellent as usual in this production. He is one of the best young actors in the country. The movie is well worth a watch

Acting is very good. Don't like major injustice laws. This one delivers an effective message to fix this particular law.
