Bronson (2008)
Biopic of the notorious convict, who was sent to prison for seven years after a failed armed robbery, only for his sentence to be increased to over 30 years by an escalating series of violent incidents, ultimately earning him tabloid celebrity as the most violent prisoner in Britain. Starring Tom Hardy, Hugh Ross and Juliet Oldfield
Really good film and up there in my top 10.

Thought it was ok, not great. No way a top 10 film for me... though did enjoy the mentions of Luton. Almost made me proud!!

Apparently it isn't exactly true to life...But how many 'biopics' are. I suppose fancying the pants off Tom Hardy swayed my decision somewhat. And there was a willy shot.*Swoon*

Yes, the willy only had a small part I seem to remember.

Also, why was every important male character outside of prison depicted as homosexual (his uncle, his friend/promoter)?
