Harry Brown is a provocative and thought-provoking modern urban western featuring a tour-de-force lead performance from two-time Academy Award-winner Michael Caine. Harry Brown has lived to see his community descend into crime and violence, and ruled over by a gang of teenage thugs. After his best friend is brutally murdered and the gang leader responsible walks free, Harry reaches a breaking point and revenge becomes his only aim. —tiff.net
"Harry Brown" serves as a horrific portrait of the disenfranchised youth roaming aimlessly through our society.

A beautifully shot film that has much in common with the western movie anti-heroes of the 60s and 70s. Revenge is a dish best served cold, and Britain seems to be a pretty cold place.
