A Role

Arty crime is coming to Liverpool! Catch it in the act!

written by Robertino Patilea and directed by Andrew McKay

A gang leader whose memoirs are to be made into a movie comes face to face with the actor who will play him. The actor undergoes an ordeal by fire to prove that he is the right man. He steals, he deals and he toughens up.

Textbook case of method acting. Of sorts. Of the crazy sorts.
