Journeyman, Paddy Considine’s second feature which co-stars new Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker, is coming to cinemas on March 30th.
Considine’s second feature, the film tells the story of middleweight boxing champion Matty Burton (Considine) who, after winning a punishing title defense on points, collapses at home.
The journey towards regaining his speech, movement and memory will be the toughest fight he’ll ever face, and the prize could not be greater, for his relationship with his wife Emma (Jodie Whittaker) and baby daughter Mia are on the line…
Journeyman is described as “a powerful and beautiful story about loss and, ultimately, triumph. It’s about our identity, and how in life we sometimes have to dig deep into our soul to discover who we really are.”
The cast also includes Anthony Welsh (My Brother The Devil), Tony Pitts (War Horse) and Paul Popplewell (’71).
The film is produced by Diarmid Scrimshaw (who also worked with Considine on Dog Altogether and Tyrannosaur) and is financed by Film4, the BFI, Screen Yorkshire, and the Wellcome Trust.
