This brilliant feature debut from director Stephen Frears (My Beautiful Laundrette, Dangerous Liaisons, The Grifters)is an affectionate–and uniquely British –tribute to the Hollywood detective movies of the 1940s. Starring the great Albert Finney (Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Murder on the Orient Express, Skyfall) as a Liverpool bingo-caller who dreams of being a private eye and then finds himself suddenly contacted for what appears to be an actual piece of detective work.
