Hard Boiled Sweets (2012) - Synopsis
Mob Boss, 'Shrewd' Eddie – ‘The Gobstopper’ (Paul Freeman; Hot Fuzz, Raiders of the Lost Ark) is used to getting whatever he wants; he runs Southend, gets all the best women including the gorgeous, sought-after Porsche – ‘The Sherbet Lemon’ (Ty Glaser; Secret Diary of a Call Girl), and has one million pounds in dirty cash stashed in a briefcase at his home. However, nothing in this world comes without a price, and this weekend his boss and top-dog London Mobster, Jimmy The Gent (Peter Wight; My Week With Marilyn, Hot Fuzz) is coming to collect the money which belongs to him. Meanwhile, reluctant ex-con Johnny – ‘The Glacier Mint’ (Scot Williams, The Crew) is forced into pulling off a heist to get his hands on the cash himself. What none of them realise is that seven other dangerous criminals also have plans to get their hands on Jimmy’s money... and will do whatever it takes to get rich.
