Exclusive Heartless Featurette
Learn about Jim Sturgess & demons

15 April 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

It's set in East London, features gang violence and accents thick enough to insulate your house with - but Heartless is no typical Brit flick. After all, how many of those have a hero with a heart-shaped birthmark on his face who finds a supernatural explanation to the violence? None, that's how many. And here's a featurette to start explaining what it's about.

Directed by Philip Ridley (The Passion of Darkly Noon) and starring Jim Sturgess, Noel Clarke, Clémence Poésy and Eddie Marsan, this tells the story of Jamie (Sturgess), a young man who despairs of the violence in the world until he learns that it's not just people who are responsible, but something a bit darker.

Heartless is out on May 21.

Really bad
Saw this at the Cork Film Festival. Was shockingly bad. Really cheap looking. Starts with promise, but ends up predictable, badly written (and acted) drivel. Shame, because I like Sturgess and the story appealed to me. More
