Middletown DVD

An explosive and gripping thriller about ambition and betrayel, Middletown is the powerful tale of two brothers battling for the heart and soul of their hometown

Matthew Macfadyen (In My Father's Den, Pride and Prejudice, Spooks) plays Gabriel, a preacher who returns after a long absence to Middletown, the place of his birth and childhood memories, only to find that things are not as they used to be. His brother's wife runs the town's local drinking den, and there are nightly cock-fights and regular scuffles. As far as Gabriel is concerned, the town's inhabitants have given over to vice and sin, and only he can save them. But Gabriel's intentions hide a dark and malevolent heart, and with religious zeal he pits neighbour against neighbour, disrupting the harmony within the community that has existed up until now. Even Gabriel's family are not free from attack and his brother Jim (Daniel Mays) and his wife Caroline (Eva Birthistle) are the first to suffer his anger.

Featuring a faultless performance of telling conviction from Macfadyen, BAFTA nominee Brian Kirk has crafted a dark and compelling gothic drama about the dangers of fundamentalism.
