'The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan' to hit UK theaters

Following the tradition of such movie as ID and The Football Factory comes The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan, and it looks right up my street. Chance are though that I will have to wait awhile before I see it, as it will be opening at UK theaters from Momentum Pictures on June 22nd. The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooigan is directed by Paul Tanter and stars Nick Nevern, Simon Philips and Peter Barrett It's not soccer, it's football, and after the break I have the fall lowdown on the flick, including synopsis, stills and trailer.

Unemployed and desperately seeking work, Mike Jacobs bumps into an old friend, Eddie Hill, during a post-match riot and arranges to hook up for a drink later that evening. Fortuitously, Ed’s got a business opportunity for Mike – working as a courier, cash-in-hand, no questions asked. Concerned that he might be getting involved in drug dealing, Mike’s somewhat relieved to learn that Ed’s scam involves credit card fraud and the only victims as far as they are concerned are the banks. What Mike doesn’t know is Ed is in the pocket of notorious London gangster whose choice of crime may have changed but whose methods certainly haven’t. Seduced by the money, drugs women and new life his new career delivers, Mike ignores the warning signs and, with circumstances spiralling way out of control, is eventually forced to make a life-changing decision, the repercussions of which will affect everyone close to him.
