A riveting and talented onscreen presence, British actor turned director Paddy Considine proved himself to be equally as gripping and assured behind the camera with his debut feature, Tyrannosaur, back in 2011. For his second feature, Journeyman, Considine writes and stars in as well as directs this tale of a boxer having to rebuild his life after a near-fatal head injury. Hours after his final prize fight against an arrogant up-and-comer, Middleweight boxing world champion Matty Burton collapses into a coma. Once awake, Burton’s personality has changed, his memory has gone and his physical movements are badly damaged.

What starts as an adrenaline driven boxing movie seamlessly morphs into an intimate study of a man trying to rebuild his life and reclaim the things that once meant so much to him. Co-starring new Doctor Who, Jodie Whittaker, as Matty’s wife, Emma, Journeyman delivers a powerful, emotional knockout blow.
