Best Laid Plans Reviews:

This really is very nice but I think they've misjudged the trailer. This isn't really a gangster thriller or a fighting film - it is now a reimagining/reworking of Of Mice and Men.A petty criminal, Danny (Stephen Graham), cares for a giant of a boy with learning difficulties, Joseph (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). When Danny gets in problem with a local crime boss he persuades Joseph to take part in a series of illegal cage wars in order to pay off his debt. OK, so far it sounds like a gangster/fighting flick, I grant you, but what has been left out of the trailer is the sub plot about Joseph falling in love with a young woman, also with learning difficulties, played by Maxine Peake.I tell 'learning difficulties' as I have no concept what the acceptable terminology is these days. Unique needs? Luckily the movie is down-to-earth and honest and doesn't pussyfoot around like I am. The characters speak as they would in true life, which does effect in one very funny line which everyone in the audience laughed at but wouldn't dare repeat outside of the cinema*.The subplot is handled with skill and care. The actors all turn in fine performances, especially Stephen Graham as the quick-witted but ultimately self-destructive central hero and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as the easy giant, Joseph. Their relationship, as you explore more and more about it, it utterly believable and is the central spine of the entire film. It's not a life changer but it is fine piece of work and well worth checking out if you receive the chance.


Not sure what movie Dodgy-Milk was watching, but it wasn't the same movie as me. Maybe something like "War Horse" would be more to their taste...This is a gritty hero study about hopes & dreams, manipulation, deceipt, selfishness, betrayal but ultimately love, albeit it a tiny unorthodox. It is "loosely" (and I mean very loosely) based on Stienbeck's "Of Mice and Men" and if you're familiar with the ebook you'll receive it but it's used more as an concept for the film, rather than a screenplay.I thoroughly enjoyed it, I thought the main performances from Steven Graham, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Maxine Peake were perfect with powerful help performances from the another members of the cast particularly David O'Hara who is in menacing form. Throughout the film, it's funny, uncomfortable, tender and shocking in equal measure...It is a very "British" movie and if you're expecting a "Hollywood" blockbuster because you've seen Graham as Al Capone in the brilliant Boardwalk Empire, this might not be the movie for you.It's a nice 8/10 from me and I would definitely suggest to anyone who likes "proper" films...


I was very impressed with this film. The actor testing Joseph was nothing short of brilliant and tender. I found myself wishing that no matter how it ended, Joseph would be taken care of.I gotta give props to the director for putting it all together in such a soft and yet gripping way. Someone had a vision with this piece and I hope they got what they were after.I hope the actor testing Joseph gets the respect he deserves and I feel honored to have stumbled upon this gem.I would highly suggest this film to anyone old enough to take the emotional pounding.
