Daddy Collection, The - Scum / Births, Marriages And Deaths / Last Orders DVD


Scum: Alan Clarke's Scum shows a vicious system and doesn't pull any of the punches - or kicks - so relentlessly deployed in the battles between rivals in the power stakes that incarceration promotes. It's the brutal story of life in a modern-day Borstal. Run by the violence and cruelty of both inmates and officers the system is a jungle which brutalizes all within its walls. Carlin who has been transferred from another Borstal for retaliation against violent officers is thrown into this human quagmire - and what follows is a harsh and bitter battle for survival. He... realises that the only way is by beating the system at its own game and eventually erupts as leader of a bloody climatic riot. Last Orders: This adaptation of Graham Swift's 1996 Booker Prize winning novel Last Orders by writer/director Fred Schepisi is an affecting movie about death friendship and booze starring a first rate cast of British actors. Jack Dodds (Michael Caine) was a regular guy so why the strange last order to have his ashes thrown off the pier at Margate? And why did his wife Amy (Helen Mirren) refuse to do it? As their Mercedes speeds towards the sea an emotional mystery unfolds where the men try to understand Jack's death by reliving their life through him... the war the children the good times and the bad. The journey becomes a pub crawl full of drink-ups and punch-ups and the men discover that through it all it's your friends who break your heart and... and your friends who mend it. Births Marriages And Deaths: Alan Graham and Terry have been best mates since primary school. Now pushing forty the three friends are still inseparable. Naturally Alan and Graham are going to give Terry a stag night to remember. A big fry-up breakfast bubbly down the dogs for a flutter ten-pin bowling... fantastic. But when the boys pay a late night revenge visit to their despised former headmaster things begin to go disastrously wrong. A tragic accident sets off an unforeseen chain of events revealing terrible secrets. Life will never be the same again. [show more]
