Paddy Considine’s ‘Journeyman’ Out Now on Bluray & DVD

Paddy Considine’s Journeyman debuted in cinemas in spring 2018 and is available now on Bluray, DVD and VOD. It is the second feature from the multi talented writer, director & actor Paddy Considine following his BAFTA Award winning directorial debut Tyrannosaur. Journeyman was filmed in Sheffield, Doncaster and Barnsley with investment from Screen Yorkshire’s Yorkshire Content Fund.

Paddy Considine, known for his roles in Dead Man’s Shoes, Red Riding, The Bourne Ultimatum and Macbeth, not only writes and directs Journeyman, but also stars, alongside Jodie Whittaker (One Day), Faraz Ayub (Honour), Tony Pitts (War Horse) and Paul Popplewell (’71).

Journeyman tells the story of middleweight boxing champion Matty Burton. As he approaches the end of his career he knows that he must make his money and get out of the game, to secure a home and future with his wife and baby daughter. After a titanic fight with the brash and controversial Andre Bryte, Matty collapses on his living-room floor, a delayed reaction to a devastating punch. Awaking from the coma, the real fight begins. Suffering from memory loss and with his personality altered, Matty must begin to piece his life back together as his world disintegrates

‘Journeyman’ is a powerful and beautiful story about loss and, ultimately, triumph. It’s about our identity, and how in life we sometimes have to dig deep into our soul to discover who we really are.
