A modern "Les Miserables" in certain ways, this British melodrama forces an ex-criminal (Mark Strong) back into the sights of a crime buster (James McAvoy) who long has been on his trail.

The former crook wants to aid his son, also caught up in illegal doings, but soon finds he and his pursuer may have to work together to expose and vanquish a lethal conspiracy. Andrea Riseborough ("Oblivion") also appears. *** (R: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
