A Sense of Freedom

Jimmy Boyle was Scotland’s most feared gangster – then he got a taste of his own medicine when he was sentenced to life in a prison where the regime was every bit as brutal as his own. Yet out of this hellish experience came an extraordinary chance of redemption, which drove Boyle to make something positive of his life. Directed by John Mackenzie (The Long Good Friday) and featuring a sensational lead performance from Trial & Retribution star David Hayman, this is one of the most searing, shocking and thought-provoking prison dramas in British screen history. Available in both the blistering original version and the controversial revised and dubbed version.
