I thought Jack Falls was a terrific looking picture and Paul has brought the same gritty realism and high production value to this new project. Boasting a great ensemble cast this is sure to be the must-see British crime movie in 2012.”
Casual football hooligan Mike Jacobs is going nowhere in life when he meets old friend Eddie Hill at a football match that turns nasty off the pitch. Under Eddie’s tutelage he soon finds himself inducted into the world of credit card fraud, where organised gangs withdraw hundreds of thousands of pounds from cash machines every night. As Mike becomes seduced by the money and women that come with his new lifestyle, the dangers increase and he soon finds events spiralling beyond his control.
Based on a true story, The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan follows the journey of a man tempted by the trappings of power and is the first feature film to address the huge criminal industry of credit card fraud.
