To celebrate the release of Icon Film Distribution’s THE LEGEND OF BARNEY THOMSON, on DVD and On Demand on November 16, we are offering ten lucky readers the opportunity to win a bundle of Icon Film Distribution’s critically acclaimed films on DVD.
BAFTA winning actor Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty) is a tour de force both in the lead role of the ill-fated barber Barney and in directing his all-star cast including Emma Thompson, Ray Winstone, Ashley Jensen & Tom Courtenay. THE LEGEND OF BARNEY THOMSON tells the tale of Barney, a hapless barber devoid of charm and ‘patter’ as his fellow barbering brethren mockingly remind him. Barney’s mediocre, mundane life of plotting for a way up is about to be transformed, following a typically incompetent fit of pique, when he inadvertently stumbles into serial murder, and with it headlong into the trail of a grotesque series of killings gripping Glasgow.
As he makes ham-fisted attempts to cover his tracks, he finds himself on the run from the bearish Detective Inspector Holdall and a testosterone-driven local Police task force at each other’s throats over the ongoing crimes. With his sanity threatening to unravel, Barney fatefully turns to his domineering, emasculating mother, the formidable Glaswegian ‘good-time girl’, Cemolina. There’s no turning back now and the path that lies ahead for Barney may yet be littered with more murderous consequences than he could have ever anticipated.
THE LEGEND OF BARNEY THOMSON is a must-see treat for DVD fans with a wealth of specially prepared bonus material including a director’s commentary with Robert Carlyle and hilarious deleted scenes and blooper clips.
