London Boulevard

Synopsis: Fresh out of prison, Mitchel wants nothing to do with crime but accepts a kip from Billy, a marginal grafter, and accompanies Billy on rent collection trips. He's also old school, wanting revenge on two youths for assaulting a mendicant he's befriended. He's got a strung-out sister to protect, and he's offered a job protecting a famous actress from paparazzi. The plot lines join when Michael finds himself attracted to the actress and Billy's Mob boss, Gant, finds ways to force Michael work for him. He also warns Michael off revenge against the assailants of his friend. What are Michael's options: is there any way to avoid Gant, protect his sister, and find a path to love?

You, you're out.

How goes it, Mitchel?

Prison makes me nervous, Billy.

Let's go, then.

Here's something new for you.

You can't smoke in the f*cking pub.

They done it in Ireland.

They done it, f*ck me,

they done it in France.

New York, they've made the fags,

so they burn out

if you leave them in the ashtray.

Tastes like shit as well.

You been to New York, Billy?

Well, that's another

f*cking story, isn't it?

The guy that

owned this flat, this doctor,

got into heavy sch-took with,

shall we say, a money lender.

Left everything.

- You're the money lender?

- Well...

Part of a firm.

And, we'd like you to be on-board.

I don't think so, Billy.

Still, you stay. Think about it. Whatever.

Where you gonna go otherwise, right?

What? 80 they give you

to make your way in London.

In London?

What is it, 47 a week

job-seekers allowance?

On Kennington Road.


I won't use it.

You need it.

And you need me, mate.

You need your friend, Billy.

There's a party tonight,

of course there's a party.

Usual, down at the Hanover.

Don't be late. It's your party, isn't it?

Did they hurt you in there, Mitchel?

Nah, not so you'd notice.

They hurt me in there, Mitchel.

I know they did, Joe.

It's all right now. Here.

You don't have to do that.

Yeah, I do.

It's a tax you pay for being all right.

You missed the World Cup.

Let's have it.

F*ck off.

Go on.

That's a shit place to park.

You're a legend.

A little something

for a rainy day, mate!

Here you go, mate!

Welcome back, brother.

Shame we can't talk about work

in a place like this, Mitch.

There's something I want

to throw you way.

If you don't talk about work here,

Danny, where do you talk about it?

- It's full of f*cking reporters, isn't it?

- What?

Do you know what I mean?

F*cking congregation

of f*cking southeast villains like this.

I mean, see that one over there? There.

Right, she's writing a f*cking book.

And they all want their

f*cking picture taken, don't they?

They all want their photo in it.

F*cking bunch of f*cking tossers.

The pad you're in, yeah?

I don't need to tell ya

there's no free lunches.

There are other things I can do,

and maybe I want to f*cking do them.

No, it ain't like you think.

I ain't going back inside, Billy, ever.

For f*cking no one.

Then don't get caught,

you f*cking cunt.

There's a bit of a ruckus

in the cellar, lad.

I think it's your sister.

Did you invite my sister?

Me? No.

She's a f*cking cow.

Come on, darling.

What are you going to do?

Are you going to kill me?

- Aye, I may.

- You going to kill me?

Hey, hey. Yo, bro. It's all cool, yeah.

It's alright.

When you're black, I'll f*cking tell you.

I told him. I told him it was only kissing.

Christ, Mitch, that ain't right. That's...

I don't give a f*ck who it is!

That's Purple Dave's nephew.

- Which Purple Dave?

- Eh?

Hey, what's up?

Where you going? Mitch?

- You look nice, Briony.

- Yeah? Do you like it? I stole it.

I'll call you tomorrow, all right?

You get some rest

and no more drinking, right?

I've not been drinking.

I've not been f*cking drinking.

- On my meds, some chance.

- Briony, you've been drinking.

- Get some rest.

- I've not been drinking.

I've not... Ugh!

F*ck! Smells like someone's

been drinking in here.

West 11. End of the road.

And make sure

she gets to the front door, yeah?

If you care about me,

you come and take care of me.

We tried that.


All right.

I haven't been drinking!

Fancy a drink?

All right. Not here.

Somewhere else.

Never again.

Where's Mitch?
