In a nervy, brash, one-of-a-kind comedic performance, Jude Law plays Dom Hemingway, a larger-than-life London safecracker with a cocky swagger who is irreverent, unhinged, and full of piss and vinegar. This hell-bent hedonist, profane pontificator, and legendary live wire has just hit the streets after twelve years in jail for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss (Demian Bichir). Now Dom’s off to France with his old partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant), looking to collect what he’s owed. But when his long-awaited payday doesn’t go as planned, Dom tries to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke) but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt. This scatological and rambunctious high-voltage comedy from the director of The Matador (2005) spins a tale of crime with a wildly original point of view: that of a chronically luckless criminal who is audacious, violent, and vengeful, yet embodies all the appetites, contradictions, and frenzied angst of modern life.
