The Wee Man

Based on the extraordinary and well documented life story of reformed Glaswegian gangster Paul Ferris.
Set in the late 80s and early 90s

Makes the Krays look like a couple of Boy Scouts!

I watched it on Amazon Prime Video but it may be on Netflix also.

10/10 well worth a watch! :cool: P.
There's something about Scottish "hard men", they come across as more ferocious but still retain some humanity...will give it a watch as a couple of my favourite films / dramas ("just a boy's game" and "a sense of freedom") are set in Glasgow...

I have just watched "A sense of freedom" a little dated but a good watch none the less, you will enjoy "Wee Man" :) P. @Missoni
If you haven't already read it, A Sense Of Freedom is an excellent book.
Jimmy Boyle of course, did some terrible things, but the book is excellent.

Was he the product of his environment and up-bringing? I couldn't say, because I wasn't there - but he seems an interesting man.

Just watched the peanut butter falcon. It's about a lad with down syndrome who escapes a care home to go and be a wrestler. One of the best films I've seen for a while, beautifully made and heart warming, nice soundtrack too. If you haven't seen it, watch it. It's superb.
