Paddy Considine & Jodie Whittaker Star In New Trailer For Boxing Drama JOURNEYMAN

journeyman
New trailer for Considine's directorial return.







Crossing from acting to directing doesn't always work out - look at the ongoing struggles of George Clooney - but Paddy Considine's 2011 debut Tyrannosaur is one of the more acclaimed dramas directed by an actor in recent years.

Considine is back behind (and in front of) the camera for Journeyman, in which he plays a middleweight boxer who suffers a massively debilitating injury. Jodie Whittaker also stars.

Journeyman is in UK cinemas February 16th.


The official synopsis reads:

Journeyman tells the story of middleweight boxing champion Matty Burton (Paddy Considine). After winning a punishing title defense on points, Matty 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 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.
