When two of the most dangerous and exciting actors in contemporary cinema decide to make a film, one thing is for sure, the subject will be challenging and the acting will be dynamic. Tim Roth, star of PULP FICTION, RESERVOIR DOGS and ROB ROY directs the legendary Ray Winstone (NIL BY MOUTH) in THE WAR ZONE. From the terrifyingly realistic car crash at the beginning to the shocking and mesmerising ending, THE WAR ZONE rips apart one of society's last remaining taboos in a blistering, powerful portrayal of a seemingly normal family hiding a terrible secret. See it once. Talk about it forever.
An alienated 15 year old (Freddie Cunliffe), forced to move away from his friends in London when his family relocates to rural Devon, struggles with the change and becomes an observer of the family. His mother (Tilda Swinton) is pregnant, his dad (Ray Winstone) is vocally abusive, and his 18 year old sister (Lara Belmont) is sexually active and open to her brother. However, the boy guesses at and finds that he is correct that his father has had sexual relations with his sister. The boy gets a sexual education from an older woman (Aisling O'Sullivan) he meets.
