Director:Gary Oldman
Cast:Ray Winstone, Kathy Burke and Charlie Creed-Miles

Actor Oldman's trenchant writing and directing debut plumbs the dark world -- we're talking sex, drugs, violence -- of a lower-class London family. A combustibly emotional movie, its formidable acting won Burke a Best Actress nod at Cannes last year. Clearly, Oldman's talents run toward both sides of the camera.
