BRIT-DIRECTED FEMALE REVENGE THRILLER “HANDGUN” (18) SET FOR UK DVD DEBUT
Part of "The British Film" Collection
Karen Young (Birdy, Heat) gives a powerfully intense performance as a victim of sexual violence who turns vigilante in this female revenge thriller, HANDGUN (18). Written, produced and directed by British film veteran Tony Garnett, it is available on DVD as a brand new transfer in its correct cinema aspect ratio for the first time in the UK on 20 May 2013, RRP £9.99.
With one broken relationship still fresh in her mind, Kathleen Sullivan (Karen Young) is in no mood to take on a new boyfriend. But macho Larry (Clayton Day) will not tolerate sexual rebuffs; rape is his means of exercising what he regards as a male prerogative.
Consumed by anger and hungry for vengeance, how will Kathleen reclaim her freedom and peace of mind?
