The highly anticipated release of ‘Filth’ is almost here, starring James McAvoy, Jamie Bell and Imogen in a sultry and dark crime-drama.
The story is of a bipolar, junkie-cop filled with hallucinations and despair as he tries to get promoted and get back his wife and daughter. Jamie Bell plays Ray Lennox, and James McAvoy plays the main character Bruce. Slowly but surely Bruce turns his colleagues against one another, sleeping with their wives, blackmailing and framing them to get ahead. All the while he is dealing with his missing wife, his drug habit and the suspicions of his colleagues.
The film was directed by Jon S. Baird, who also wrote the screenplay. The movie itself is based on the Irvine Welsh written in 1998. Due to the nature of the film it will see a limited release starting in the U.K. on September 17, 2013. The film is under Lionsgate.
