Nick Love, director of 'The Football Factory', presents another dark tale of the underground violence that accompanied the beautiful game in the '70s and '80s. The Firm is an action-packed drama for film fans who like their kicking to take place both on and off the pitch!
Loosely adapted from Alan Clarke's 1989 classic TV film, Nick Love's The Firm is set earlier in the '80s and retells a similar story to the original - but from a different character's point of view. The film centres on Dom, a young wannabe football casual, who gets drawn into the charismatic but dangerous world of the firm's top boy, Bex.
Accepted for his fast mouth and sense of humour, Dom soon becomes one of the boys. But as Bex and his gang clash with rival firms accross the country and the violence spirals out of control, Dom realises he wants out - until he learns it's not that easy to simply walk away.
Humourous, heart warming and set to a killer jazz funk 80's soundtrack, The Firm is a classic coming of age story set amongst one of England's most revered tribes.
