Synopsis

The impressive debut feature from Gerard Johnson, Tony has already drawn favourable comparisons to Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and Taxi Driver, and is one of the most original and disturbing British films of recent years.

Unemployed and unemployable, Tony is an alienated psychopath with severe social problems, an obsession for action films and a horrible moustache. The monotony of his life is interrupted only by his nervous attempts to make friends, which are invariably rebuffed by laughter or contempt. Occasionally he snaps, and violence is the result...

Featuring a star-making lead performance from Peter Ferdinando, Tony is dark, brutal, yet bleakly amusing and will stay with you long after you finish watching.
