DIRECTED BY DANIEL BARBER
EAST COAST PREMIERE
Meet Harry Brown (Michael Caine), a simple man who spends his days visiting his gravely ill wife in the hospital, playing chess with his (last) best mate Leonard at the local pub, and dodging the warring gang members living in one of Britain’s most desolate public-housing apartment blocks. Push comes to shove after Harry loses his wife and the local gang kids settle a score with Leonard, killing him. What these violent drug dealers don’t know is that Harry Brown once served in the Royal Marines, and elderly or not, he’s reached his breaking point and is ready to dole out some justice. The police can’t control the situation, and detective Frampton (Emily Mortimer) and her partner Hicock (Charlie Creed-Miles) don’t believe an ailing Harry is capable of such vengeful attacks. 2007 Oscar® nominee Daniel Barber’s feature directorial debut demonstrates remarkable control of tone and pace as it slowly brings out the darkness in Harry Brown, even as we root for him. Searingly brutal and shockingly authentic, this is much more than your run-of-the-mill vigilante film—especially when Michael Caine is HARRY BROWN.
