UK/2018/92mins/TBC Dir: Paddy Considine. With Jodie Whittaker, Paddy Considine
Matty Burton is a middleweight boxing world champion. Nearing the end of his career, he needs to make money before he gets out of the game to secure a home and future for his wife Emma and their baby daughter. Facing a brash, controversy-courting opponent in his final bout, it proves a titanic battle and at home after it ends, Matty collapses on the living room floor. When he awakens from a coma, the real fight begins. Suffering from memory loss and personality changes, Matty must try to piece a new life and a new self together as his previous world disintegrates. A powerfully moving story of loss, identity and adversity, Considine’s film is authentic and eloquent on the physical losses and emotional difficulties but also gains that may result from life-changing injury.
