Jude Law has had a lot of supporting roles in films lately, but he takes the lead in a new gangster film called Dom Hemingway, and it looks like he gives a great performance. The movie looks entertaining, but all of the reviews I've seen have been raving about Law's performance.
Dom Hemingway (Law) is a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse, funny, profane, and dangerous. Back on the streets of London after twelve years in prison, it’s time to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut.
Travelling with his devoted best friend Dickie (Richard E. Grant), Dom visits his crime boss Mr Fontaine (Demián Bichir) in the south of France to claim his reward. But Dom’s drink and drug-fuelled ego decides that what he’s lost can’t be replaced. One car accident and a femme fatale later, Dom realises that his priority must be to reconnect with his long-lost daughter Evelyn (Emilia Clarke). But Dom does what Dom does best. He screws things up for everyone…
The movie will be released in the UK on November 15th, and in the US on April 4th.
