Guy Ritchie, the mastermind behind Snatch and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, takes his audience back to the grimy streets of London with his latest film, Rocknrolla. Described as a mix of sex, thugs and rock'n'roll, the film stars Gerard Butler (300, PS I Love You) as One Two, a street-smart hustler who tries to play both sides of the fence. Thandie Newton (Crash, The Pursuit of Happyness) stars as One Two's love interest, Stella, a smart and sexy accountant with ties to the underworld. Tom Wilkinson (Michael Clayton, In the Bedroom) makes an appearance as the ruthless head mobster, Lenny Cole, part of London's old crime regime, which is quickly losing ground to the wealthier foreign mob. (Strong violence and coarse language).
