Unconventional biopic of one of the UK's most notorious and violent inmates of our overcrowded prison system. Charles Bronson has spent 30 of his 34 years behind bars in solitary confinement, and has not been allowed to mix with other prisoners since 1999. Narrated by the central character, the film transports us back to his formative years with his mother, moving from Aberystwyth to Merseyside and later to Luton. Born Michael Peterson, he eventually changes his name at the behest of boxing promoter Paul Daniels, who believes Charles Bronson is a fighting name, "like a movie star."
