The Film: London Boulevard

London Boulevard is the directorial debut of William Monahan - the acclaimed screenwriter of Scorsese's The Departed - starring Colin Farrell. Based on a book by Ken Bruen, it's a thriller about an ex-con, played by Farrell, trying to make a fresh start working for a reclusive young movie star (Keira Knightley). Romance is inevitable - but so too is danger - in the substantial shape of Ray Winstone.
