Set in modern-day Britain, HARRY BROWN follows one man's journey through a chaotic world where drugs are the currency of the day and guns run the streets. A modest law-abiding citizen, Harry Brown (Sir Michael Caine) is a retired Marine and a widower who lives alone on a depressed housing estate. His only company is his best friend Leonard (David Bradley).
When Leonard is murdered by a gang of thugs, Harry feels compelled to act and is forced to dispense his own brand of justice. As he bids to clean up the run-down estate where he lives, his actions bring him into conflict with the police, led by investigating officer DCI Frampton (Emily Mortimer) and Hickock (Charlie Creed-Miles).
HARRY BROWN was shot on location in and around London's The Elephant and Castle, and at Elstree Studios. The supporting cast includes Liam Cunningham (HUNGER), and up-and-coming British talent like Ben Drew aka Plan B (ADULTHOOD), Jack O'Connell (EDEN LAKE), Lee Oakes (TWO PINTS OF LAGER AND A PACKET OF CRISPS), Joseph Gilgun (THIS IS ENGLAND) and Sean Harris (24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE). David Bradley (HARRY POTTER, HOT FUZZ) and Iain Glen (KINGDOM OF HEAVEN) also star.
Written by Gary Young (SHOOTERS, SPIVS), HARRY BROWN is directed by Academy Award nominee Daniel Barber (THE TONTO WOMAN).
