The story of notorious Canadian bank robber Edwin Boyd (Scott Speedman), beginning with his return from duty in the Second World War. Dismayed by public indifference toward veterans, humiliated by his inability to provide for his children and his wife Doreen (Kelly Reilly), and seeing only disappointment in the face of his policeman father (Brian Cox), Eddie resorts to unlawful activity.
What starts as small time bank robberies, evolves over timeand with experienceinto a career that turns Boyd into postwar Toronto's public enemy number one.
Canadian Connection: Filmed in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Most of the cast members are Canadian.
boring...love the canadian history/location but the movie put me to sleep!
scott speedman's performance made this movie what it was, an interesting story about a notorious canadian bank robber. loved the set design and costume from the era as well.
this was a good movie to take my wife to. there was good action and you could not really tell it was a canadian production.
