Ian McShane (John Wick), Ray Winstone (Snow White and the Huntsman), and Johnny Harris  (RocknRolla) star in the British sports action-drama Jawbone, which was recently nominated for a BAFTA Award for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer (write/producer Johnny Harris and director Thomas Napper).

Johnny Harris in Jawbone

In the film, retired prizefighter Jimmy McCabe (Harris) is a down-and-outer who’s in search of hope but finds himself looking in all the wrong places. When he hits rock bottom he turns to his childhood boxing club and the only family he has left: gym owner Bill (Winstone), corner man Eddie (Michael Smiley, The Lobster) and promoter Joe (McShane). Jimmy tries to regain his magic by training hard and fighting tough. But to earn real money, he must take part in a savage, unlicensed match that could end his career — and his life.

Rolled out on a limited basis in the U.K. and Netherlands in May, 2017 (it never opened in the U.S.), Jawbone currently holds a 100 Fresh Rating at reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes based on 25 reviews! Yowza!!

The DVD contains a making-of featurette as a supplement.
