THE BOXER TRAILER
Available on DVD through www.umbrellaent.com.au
The team behind Academy Award® winning films My Left Foot and In The Name of The Father, filmmaker Jim Sheridan and Daniel Day-Lewis reunite to explore a potent drama about loyalty, dedication and the power of courage.
Danny Flynn (Oscar® winner Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln) is a boxer with a lot of baggage. Having served 14 years of prison for associating with IRA terrorists, he returns to his Belfast neighbourhood to begin life anew. It is a time of considerable change, as local IRA leader Joe Hamill (Brian Cox, Braveheart) attempts to negotiate a peace treaty with the British. As Danny channels his purpose into a neighbourhood boxing gym he is reunited with former girlfriend Maggie (Oscar® nominee Emily Watson, Hilary and Jackie). But as Danny’s fortunes shift favourably, he soon becomes caught in a cross-fire of violence and deceit that will truly rock his world.
