Payback Season (12A)
Starring: Adam Deacon, David Ajala, Nichola Burley
Friday 09 March 2012
Danny Donnelly's cautionary tale about a premiership footballer (Adam Deacon) blackmailed by his old mates has such modest production values that it evokes memories of old episodes of Grange Hill.
There is a cameo from Geoff Hurst as a football agent but the pick of the performances is from David Ajala, who brings intensity, menace and humour to the villain consumed with jealousy about his friend's success.
And why are 'southern' ways of speaking spreading north?
