Stormy Monday
Filmfest 2006

Cosmo, a ruthless American businessman, arrives in Newcastle intent on buying up the waterfront district for redevelopment. However, one property still eludes him - the Key Club - owned by the tough and prosperous Finney. When Brendan, a new employee at the club, meets Kate, Cosmo's former mistress, they begin an intense and passionate affair. The lovers soon get caught up in the fierce battle between Finney and Cosmo. "Figgis‘s moody direction of his excellent screenplay is quietly effective and brimming with visual nuance and irony - particularly in its perceptive take on love, money, jazz, and economic necessity."
