Loosely adapted from the cult 1989 movie starring Gary Oldman, Nick Love’s The Firm is set earlier in the 80s and retells a similar story to the original – but from a different character’s point of view. The film centres on Dom, a young wannabe football casual, who gets drawn into the charismatic but dangerous world of the firm’s top boy, Bex.
Accepted for his fast mouth and sense of humour, Dom soon becomes one of the boys. But as Bex and his gang clash with rival firms across the country and the violence spirals out of control, Dom realises he wants out – until he learns it’s not that easy to simply walk away. Humorous, heart-warming and set to a killer 80s soundtrack, The Firm is a classic coming-of-age story set amongst one of England’s most revered tribes.
