The Firm In Cinemas Sept 18th – Nick Love’s on TOP form

Posted in Film by flicksandbits on September 10, 2009

I recently attended the press screening of The Firm and am safe to say Nick Love (The Business, Football Factory….) is on top form. The Firm is very funny, the music is great, the acting is great, the visuals are great and the story is one of the best coming of age story’s I’ve seen this year.The Firm is Loosely adapted from Alan Clarkes 1989 classic TV film, Nick Loves film is set earlier in the 80s and retells a similar story to the original but from a different characters point of view. The film centres on Dom, a young wannabe football casual, who get drawn into the charismatic but dangerous world of the firms top boy, Bex.

Accepted for the fast mouth and sense of humour, Dom soon becomes one of the boys. But as Bex and his gang clash with rival firms across the country and the violence spirals out of control, Dom realises he wants out until he learns its not that easy to simply walk away.

Humorous, heart-warming and set to a killer jazz funk 80s soundtrack, The Firm is a classic coming-of-age story set amongst one of Englands most revered tribes.
