    Violent British drama Piggy hits the big screen and DVD this May

    Inline Image
    Seems to be something that is becoming a regular occurrence, small independent film hits the cinema and then, presumably to save a bit of marketing budgets, DVD a few weeks later.

    This time it's the turn of British affair Piggy, starring Martin Compston, who you may know from The Disappearance of Alice Creed, Paul Anderson of The Firm fame, and Neil Maskell who was in Kill List.

    Kieron Hawkes directs this gritty outing of revenge, and you can see it on the big screen from 4th May at your local multiplex, or if the comfort of your own home is preferred, 21st May on DVD.

    Synposis and trailer follow...

    Joe (Martin Compston) is a mild mannered young man bored by his humdrum London life. When his beloved brother (Neil Maskell) is murdered, Joe finds solace in Piggy, one of his brother's old friends. Piggy helps Joe to cope with grief, intent on saving him and helping him get justice for his brother's killing.

    As their friendship grows Joe finds himself in an increasing dangerous and murky world of violence and revenge. As Joe life collapses around him he starts to question who Piggy really is, and how honest he's really been with him. When Joe confronts Piggy a series of events are put in place that lead to a disastrous climax.
