Released from prison after a 12-year stretch, larger-than-life safecracker Dom Hemingway is determined to get what he’s owed for keeping quiet about the last job. But after visiting his boss, Dom decides his promised reward isn’t enough to replace what he’s lost. Characteristically for the notorious criminal with a drug and drink-fuelled ego, Dom manages to mess everything up before deciding on his real priorities.
Directed by Richard Shepard (The Matador) and starring Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes, Side Effects) as Dom Hemingway, alongside Richard E. Grant (Withnail and I, The Iron Lady) Kerry Condon (The Runway) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones).
At the end of 2012, the Dom Hemingway production team came to The Historic Dockyard Chatham which doubled as the prison exterior for the scenes where Dom Hemingway (Jude Law) is released.
The Historic Dockyard Chatham is set over eighty acres and has a variety of buildings dating from the Tudor, Georgian and Victorian periods. Its rich history and authentic look and feel have led several film and television crews to film here including Mr. Selfridge (2013), Les Miserables (2012) and The Golden Compass (2007).
Dom Hemingway was in cinemas on Friday 15th November 2013 and is now available to buy on DVD.
