Synopsis: “Based on the true life experience of Billy Moore who survived his Thai prison ordeal by becoming a Muay Thai boxing champion.”
Normally these “based on a true story” movies are really dry and melodramatic, but this trailer gets the adrenaline pumping! Joe Cole (best known for his role as John Shelby in one of the best TV shows ever – Peaky Blinders) actually shot this film on location in a Thai prison and it looks intense and brutal. There’s a rawness to the trailer that really sucks you in and the music and visuals had us locked in the whole way through. This film is distributed by A24 which is fairly can’t-miss when it comes to the films they pick. In 2017 alone they’ve distributed A Disaster Artist, Killing of a Sacred Deer, Florida Project and A Ghost Story – hopefully we can add this one to the list of terrific flicks under their banner.
