Journeyman was one of the finest, strongest films (Read Matt’s 5-star review) of the early part of 2018, so if you haven’t seen it yet then this is the perfect chance to catch up with Paddy Considine‘s powerful and emotional drama, that also stars the excellent Jodie Whittaker, when it’s released on Blu-Ray, DVD, digital download and VOD on 30th July, along with exclusive new extras, from STUDIOCANAL.
Considine not only writes and directs Journeyman, but also stars in the lead role alongside Whittaker, Anthony Welsh, Tony Pitts and Paul Popplewell. Following on from his brilliant directorial debut Tyrannosaur, here’s some official words on what to expect if you’re new to the film:
After winning a punishing title defence on points, Matty Burton (Considine) 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 (Whittaker) and baby daughter Mia are on the line…
Many of the supporting cast make their acting debuts and take on roles that closely mirror their actual professions with appearances from boxers, boxing commentators, nurses and occupational therapists. Journeyman was developed and shot in close collaboration with the boxing community and medical profession. 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.
