Harry Brown (2009) (C)
Every man has a breaking point.
Set in modern day Britain, Harry Brown follows one man's (Michael Caine) journey through a chaotic world where drugs are the currency of the day and guns run the streets. A modest law abiding citizen, Harry Brown is a retired Marine and a widower who lives alone on a depressed housing estate. His only company is his best friend Leonard (David Bradley).
When Leonard is murdered by a gang of thugs, Harry feels compelled to act and is forced to dispense his own brand of justice. As he bids to clean up the run-down estate where he lives, his actions bring him into conflict with the police, led by investigating officer DCI Frampton (Emily Mortimer). -- (C) Samuel Goldwyn Films, 2009, UK.
