A murky thriller exploring the concept of “honour" killings, Honour has a new trailer that showcases a side of Paddy Considine’s arsenal we haven’t seen since Dead Man’s Shoes. Here he plays an unnamed bounty hunter tasked with a terrible brief. Click below to watch it.
Scottish actor-turned-director Shan Khan penned this story of a young Muslim woman (Aiysha Hart) whose plan to elope with her boyfriend Tanvir (Nikesh Patel) proves unpalatable to her family. So unpalatable, in fact, that they decide to have her killed. As you do.
When the hit goes awry, Mona flees and it’s Considine’s bounty hunter who finds himself charged with tracking her down somewhere in the big city. Expect moral quandries galore as he finds himself immersed in a situation far beyond his ken.
It’s billed as a topical spin on Romeo & Juliet, although punchier because Shakespeare totally forgot to put a bounty hunter into his play.
Honour lands in UK cinemas on April 4 before scoring a DVD release three weeks later.
