Dom Hemingway

Released from prison twelve years after taking the fall to protect his benefactor, Mr. Fontaine, Dom admits to “anger problems,” which he vents as soon as he tastes the heady oxygen of freedom. The years of bottled frustration and anger and pent-up emotions are released like a champagne cork before he is summoned to France to see the big boss. Accompanied by his longtime sidekick, given a beautiful turn by the incomparable Richard E. Grant, Dom luxuriates in the bucolic pleasures of a country estate whilst also ogling the expansive allure of Fontaine’s high-class moll. [Synopsis courtesy of TIFF]
