    If I was to make a perfect film it would be British and boxing related, it would also star Ray Winstone and Ian McShane. I would also have a smattering of the actors from This Is England.

    To round it off I would have Paul Weller to do the soundtrack. Jawbone is out next month :)

    Danny Leigh on Film 2017 mentioned this one a few weeks ago. Apparently, it's the business. Looking forward to it.

    I thought Ray was good in Sexy Beast, big fan of Paddy Consedine esp Tyrannosaurus. Thanks for the link.

    This thread needs a title upgrade. Anyways, Jawbone is now on Netflix, and it's well worth a watch. As gritty and dark as the trailer suggests, with 'This Is England's' Johnny Harris delivering a powerhouse and tortured performance. Some nice support from Ian MacShane, Ray Winstone and a great Michael Smiley. I'm a big fan of boxing movies, and this is up there with the more authentic ones.
