A Sense Of Freedom DVD

A Sense Of Freedom DVD
When barely into his twenties, Jimmy Boyle was Scotland’s most feared gangster – a Gorbals ‘hard man’ notorious for his extreme violence. Then he got a taste of his own medicine when he was sentenced to life in a Scottish prison where the regime, with its punishment beatings and solitary confinement, was every bit as brutal as that on the street. Yet out of this bleak and seemingly dead-end system of crime and punishment came an extraordinary chance of redemption, which drove Boyle to make something positive of his life in ways that neither he nor anyone else could ever have imagined. Directed by John Mackenzie (The Long Good Friday) and featuring a sensational lead performance from Trial & Retribution star David Hayman, the BAFTA-nominated A Sense of Freedom remains one of the most searing, shocking and thought-provoking prison dramas in Brirish screen history. Features both the blistering original version and the controversial revised and dubbed version.
