The Veteran - Preview and trailer
Preview by Jack Foley
REVOLVER Entertainment presents acclaimed British actor and BAFTA-nominee Toby Kebbell (Prince of Persia, Control, RocknRolla) in The Veteran, the gritty, hard-hitting tale of Robert Miller, a young soldier returning from Afghanistan, unable to fit back into society and soon targeted as a clandestine operative to monitor suspected terrorists in Britain.
Writer/Director Matthew Hope (The Vanguard) helms this independent production, which he scripted with Robert Henry Craft, a former member of The Parachute Regiment who completed 24 years of exemplary service including active service worldwide.
Although fiction, the film reflects on his experiences of adapting to civilian life, along with trying to self-manage PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).
Pertinent to the current social climate, The Veteran explores the link between the war on terror and the war on drugs, from the soldiers on the front line to the drug dealers on the streets of Britain and how both are controlled and manipulated directly and indirectly by the government.
The film is shot on location in London; featuring BAFTA and EMMY award winner and Golden Globe nominee Brian Cox CBE (The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, X:Men X2), grime music star Ashley Thomas (Shank, 18.104.22.168), Tom Brooke (The Boat That Rocked, The Young Victoria), Tony Curran (The Adventures of Tin Tin) and military trained Israeli actress Adi Bielski.
The Veteran is out on Blu-ray and DVD on August 29. Pre-order it here
