Multi-award winning writer Jimmy McGovern’s brand new film based on the UK’s controversial Joint Enterprise Law.
Following on from acclaimed dramas Hillsborough and Dockers, this fictional drama is shot with McGovern’s customary zeal to give voice to the unheard. McGovern’s landmark single drama examines the potential for injustice with the Joint Enterprise (or Common Purpose) rule; a young man gives friends an impromptu lift to a pizza parlour and finds himself charged with murder.
Common is directed by David Blair.
