Legend (2015, Tom Hardy, Emily Browning)

Published

on


Tom Hardy takes both lead roles in Legend writer-director Brian Helgeland’s biopic of London gangsters Ronnie and Reggie Kray.

The swaggering narrative, by turns humorous and brutally violent, kicks off with detective superintendent Leonard ‘Nipper’ Read (Christopher Eccleston) shadowing Reggie as he goes to wake his tardy chauffeur Frankie Shea (Colin Morgan). The driver’s lie-in is fortuitous for Reggie: he’s greeted by Frankie’s younger sister Frances (Emily Browning, who also provides the movie’s narration), whom he instantly invites on a date.

Meanwhile, psychopathically violent Ronnie is in prison, having been declared criminally insane. However, an unfortunate psychiatrist (Nicholas Farrell) is leant upon to provide the testimony needed to release him. Now the twins are free to pursue their ambition of controlling the capital. But, with fierce rivals and intense police interest, it won’t be easy… With Tara Fitzgerald as Frances’ mother; David Thewlis as the brothers’ business manager; and Chazz Palminteri as the Mafia boss who’s taken aback by Ronnie’s open homosexuality.
