Denzel Washington directed and stars in this adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which centres on a black garbage collector named Troy Maxson in 1950s Pittsburgh.

Both Washington and co-star Viola Davis won Tonys for their performances in the 2010 revival of the play.

Remake of a 1949 Ealing classic of the same name, which itself was based on a real-life incident that occurred in 1941 on the Hebridean island of Eriskay when the SS Politician ran aground. The tale of how a group of local Scottish islanders raided a shipwreck for its consignment of 24,000 cases of whisky quickly became legend. What's less well reported, however, was the fact that the ship was also carrying a sizeable amount of hard cash. According to official files recently released by the Home Office, there was nearly 290,000 ten shilling notes on board as well (this would be the equivalent of several million pounds at today's prices), not all of which was ever recovered. “What makes the film so pleasurable is the humour and lyricism with which it tells its rousing story of whisky-loving small timers” - **** The Independent
