Three And Out (2008)
Wednesday 6th August 2008
How far would you go to change your life? If a deal's a deal, what do you do if you can't live with the consequences? This is the dilemma facing tube driver Paul Callow in the hilarious comedy Three And Out, set for DVD release on 15th September 2008 from Contender Home Entertainment.
Starring Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Brothers Grimm, The Office) in his first bona fide lead in a movie, Three And Outcombines riotous comedic capers with painfully funny truths. Crook's gangly, sensitive English actor is perfectly placed against the big, burly Irish actor and Golden Globe nominee Colm Meaney (Layer Cake, Con Air, The Commitments) who plays suicidal Tommy Cassidy.
Added to mix is the gorgeous new Bond girl Gemma Arterton who plays Tommy's feisty daughter and Callow's love interest Frankie, with Oscar nominated Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter, Vera Drake, Cranford) playing Frankie's mother and Tommy's estranged wife, Rosemary.
Directed by first-time helmer Jonathan Gershfield (Big Train, Dead Ringers, Twisted Tales), making the move into features after a distinguished career in television, Three And Out also features a superb soundtrack, with two classics sung by Lee Mead (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), Somebody Help Me and You've Got a Friend, an original score by award-winning composer Trevor Jones and tracks by The Coral, Blondie, The Pogues and more!
So here's the deal - if you like your comedy to be fun, riotous and ultimately satisfying, then look no further than Three And Out.
Tube driver Paul Callow (Crook) accidently runs someone down with his train. A few days later, he has the misfortune to have another 'one-under'. His colleagues tell him about a little known 'rule' at London Underground. The one no-one talks about. THREE 'under' within a month and you're OUT, but with a huge pay off! What would you do? Take trauma counselling and drive very, very carefully? Or do you seek out a third 'one-under', take the cash, pay off your debts and retire to a Scottish idyll to write a novel?
