From acclaimed writer-director Gerard Johnson (Hyena, Tony) comes
a psychological thriller that’s dripping in sweat, tears and testosterone…
is the story of Simon (Cavan Clerkin, The Last Kingdom, The Capture) an unhappy, unambitious office
worker whose life is gradually taken over by Terry (Craig Fairbrass, Villain, Rise of the Footsoldier) his new, hands-on personal
trainer who reveals himself to be more committed, and more dangerous, than
Simon could have ever imagined.
Simon isn’t living the life he wants. He’s tired of his dead-end job at a
call centre – and he isn’t even any good at it. He and his girlfriend are
painfully drifting apart, he’s sick of his life and it’s time to make a
change and hit the gym. But everything spins out of control when he draws
the attention of Terry, who offers to coach him, and quickly becomes his
boss, friend and roommate. Soon, Simon finds himself trapped in a
self-destructive spiral with every aspect of his life resting in Terry’s
hands, and no way out.
With searing energy, incredible performances and a new soundtrack by the
legendary THE THE, Muscle is the most original, must-see
British film of the year.
