Dead Man's Shoes Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Richard ([[Performer~P271580~Paddy Considine~paddyconsidine]] of [[Feature~V267632~In America~inamerica]]) returns to the rural region of Derbyshire, where he grew up, after seven years in the military. His mentally challenged brother, Anthony (newcomer [[Performer~P412781~Toby Kebbell~tobykebbell]]), tags along. Something awful has happened to Anthony, and Richard means to set things right. Richard angrily confronts Herbie ([[Performer~P412782~Stuart Wolfenden~stuartwolfenden]]), a small-time drug dealer, in the local pub, then creepily apologizes to him a few minutes later outside. Herbie runs to his mates and tells them what happened, but before they have a chance to respond, they find that they're targets. Richard starts out with relatively harmless pranks, vandalizing their houses and painting their faces while they're asleep. Sonny (former boxer [[Performer~P197959~Gary Stretch~garystretch]]), the gang's bullying leader, confronts Richard on the street, but Richard refuses to back down. Sonny's ragtag crew are ill equipped to respond to Richard's ruthless military tactics. As Richard inexorably goes about his business, and the bodies begin to pile up, we learn, through flashbacks, what happened to Anthony. Dead Man's Shoes was directed by [[Performer~P213819~Shane Meadows~shanemeadows]] ([[Feature~V265462~Once Upon a Time in the Midlands~onceuponatimeinthemidlands]]), who co-wrote the script with [[Performer~P271580~Considine~paddyconsidine]]. The film had its U.S. premiere at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi
