Overview

The always-interesting David Leland handled the directing chores on this British drama. Liam Neeson plays an unemployed Scotsman whose inability to find a job threatens his family's wellbeing. Against his better judgement, Neeson is coerced into a bare-knuckle boxing match. No Rocky-style optimism here: this is a grim, unrelenting study of people laid low by a moribund national economy and an overall feeling of utter hopelessness. The impressive supporting cast includes Hugh Grant, Joanne Whaley-Kilmer, Cameron Mitchell and Billy Connolly. Adapted from a novel by William McIvanney, this film was originally released as simply Crossing the Line.
