Starring: Colin Farrell and Anna Friel
An ex-con falls in love with a reclusive young movie star and finds himself in a duel with a vicious gangster
This independent crime noir is based on Ken Bruen’s 2001 novel of the same name and features quite a few brief glimpses of railways. There is a short scene filmed outside the entrance to Oval Underground station and a shot of Colin Farrell walking along Bramley Road, W10. As he passes beneath the Hammersmith & City Line viaduct, a train of LT C stock passes overhead. There is a scene filmed at night on the South Bank with a Class 465 ‘Networker’ EMU passing over the Thames on Hungerford Bridge, and finally a view of the Lambeth skyline with a middle distant shot of a passing Class 450 ‘Desiro’ EMU.
