Synopsis by Jennifer Lackman
Brian Helgeland (Payback) wrote and directed this crime drama about the rise and fall of two of the most notorious gangsters in England's history: the Kray twins. Tom Hardy stars as both Ronald and Reginald Kray, identical twins who rose to prominence in London's underworld in the 1950s and '60s, using gruesome, unhinged tactics and savvy business acumen to seize control of the city. The film is adapted from John Pearson's nonfiction tome The Profession of Violence. Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Taron Egerton, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri, and Paul Bettany co-star.
