Directed by Daniel Barber and co-starring Emily Mortimer, the film looks at the violent drug-fueled gangs of a decrepit London housing project,  and how an ex-Marine, recently bereaved of both his wife and best friend, decides enough is enough.

Caine discusses his epic film career, how growing up in a rough area of south London and being in the National Service has influenced his acting style, and that his first decision after accepting a role is his hair style. He says that Harry Brown is not a violent film,  but a film about violence and how its shocking themes were initially brought to light in A Clockwork Orange.
