Ewan McGregor (Big Fish) gives the performance of his career in this shocking noir thriller based on the cult novel by Scottish Beat poet Alexander Trocchi. Ella (Tilda Swinton, The Statement) may have been the boss' wife, but Joe (McGregor) couldn't have cared less. Their torrid affair took his mind off the beautiful dead girl found floating in the river. Her name was Cathie (Emily Mortimer, Lovely and Amazing), and Joe was the last person to see her alive. Was Cathie's death an accident?Suicide? Or was it murder? Only Joe knows for certain. And the shocking truth could save the life of an innocent man...or send a guilty one to the gallows.
