One of my favorite films from this past Sundance was a small, UK film, BRONSON. It stars Tom Hardy (RocknRolla, the yet to be released Inception) as a man who, after being sentenced to seven years for a minor burglary, ends up spending 30 years in solitary confinement. Based on an actual person and brilliantly executed by Nicolas Winding Refn, the film is funny, violent, and remarkably poignant.
It opens domestically on October 23. Watch the trailer:
