    Default Journeyman - brilliant boxing film

    Really good film this 👌

    JOURNEYMAN is a heartbreaking love story set in the world of professional boxing
    Very moving film brilliantly acted and directed by Paddy Considine.

    The story begins with World Champion Matty Burton (Considine) and the build-up to his fight with brash, unbeaten and mouthy prospect Andre Bryte (Anthony Welsh). Supporting Burton is his wife, Emma (amazing Jodie Whittaker), and the two have a young child together. The opening montage establishes Burton's life showing he has everything to fight for including: family, friends, pride, career and community.

    After the fight in the ring Considine and Whittaker take centre stage in a deeply moving portrait of a family coming apart due to tragic circumstances. Their performances as two characters battling to stay in love, together and just fighting to keep going is remarkable. There are so many startling scenes and moments which punch and wind you; this story moved me beyond words.

    Watched it a few weeks ago. Real hard viewing but excellent.

    Had to hold back a man tear or two at times.
