The fourth feature from Shane Meadows (Twentyfourseven, A Room For Romeo Brass); one of the UK’s most exciting directors, Dead Man’s Shoes is a gritty yet fiercely moral tale of gangland retribution.
Two brothers return to the hometown they left eight years earlier, to find it still run by the same gang of small-time drug dealers and petty thugs. Their purpose, it soon becomes clear, is not reunion, but revenge – a quest of particular significance for Richard (Paddy Considine, The Last Resort, In America), the leader of the two, whose obsessive desire to even the score will lead them into dangerous territory.
Evoking Get Carter in its avenging brother scenario and featuring an outstanding central performance from Considine (not to mention a cracking score featuring Bonnie Prince Billy and The Aphex Twin), Dead Man’s Shoes is Meadows’ finest film to date.
