44 Inch Chest (2009) - Synopsis

44 Inch Chest, a powerful and explosive drama of retribution and is the feature film debut of renowned photographer and commercial director Malcolm Venville.

Colin Diamond (RAY WINSTONE) is in agony, shattered by the bombshell of his wife’s (JOANNE WHALLEY) infidelity with a young French waiter. His motley crew of friends - Old Man Peanut (JOHN HURT), Meredith (IAN MCSHANE), Archie (TOM WILKINSON), and Mal (STEPHEN DILLANE) - kidnap Loverboy (MELVIL POUPAUD), and assemble a kangaroo court so that Colin can restore his manhood with revenge. A very bumpy night ensues for Loverboy whose life is at stake as Colin wrestles with heartbreak, anger, madness, love and gargantuan self-pity.

Potent, provocative and outrageously profane, this visceral exploration of the masculine ego at breaking point is penned by Sexy Beast writers Louis Mellis and David Scinto,
