The Hot Potato
Starring: Ray Winstone. Colm Meaney and Louise Redknapp
Based on a true story. London’s East End, 1969: The Beatles are kings of the hit parade; America and the USSR are the only nuclear superpowers – and the arrest and pending trial of Ronnie and Reggie Kray, self-appointed Princes of the East End, dominate the headlines. One fine summer’s night, a Ministry of Defence facility in west London is virtually destroyed by an explosion and devastating fire; an event that leads to our heroes Kenny (Ray Winstone)and Danny (Jack Huston) coming into possession of what turns out to be a large lump of weapons grade Uranium, The Hot Potato!
Initially unaware of The Hot Potato’s true value they very quickly realise the danger they’ve been exposed to. Ably assisted by Danny’s girlfriend, the beautiful Carole (Lois Winstone) and shadowed at every turn by the unshakeable criminal Harry (Colm Meaney), Kenny and Danny reluctantly embark on a quest to offload the potato to the highest bidder.
Taking them on an epic journey that criss-crosses Europe, and into the company of an ever increasing assortment of shady and bizarre characters, The Hot Potato is an ‘Italian Job’ meets ‘The Pink Panther’ tinged crime caper that you won’t forget!
