The fourth feature from Shane Meadows, one of the UK’s most exciting directors, Dead Man’s Shoes is a gritty yet fiercely moral tale of gangland retribution.
Richard (Considine) has always protected his simple-minded younger brother Anthony (Kebbell), but when Richard leaves the rural village where they have grown up to join the army, Anthony is taken in by Sonny (Stretch), a vicious local drug dealer, and his gang of thugs. Anthony becomes the gang’s pet and it amuses them to intimidate him and corrupt his innocence. Seven years later Richard returns for revenge.
