Film of the day: Sexy Beast

Sexy Beast - Ray Winstone

Ray Winstone and Ben Kingsley star in this Oscar- and BAFTA-nominated crime thriller from director Jonathan Glazer.

Gary (Winstone) is a top professional criminal who’s now living in retirement in Spain with his wife Deedee (Amanda Redman). But his peace is shattered when his former associate Don (Ben Kingsley), a violent psychopath, is sent by underworld boss Teddy Bass (Ian McShane) to persuade Gary, by any means necessary, to return for one last job.

What follows is a battle of wills between the two men, one threatening, the other reluctant, which escalates to a dramatic, violent conclusion.
