A bipolar, bigoted, junkie cop manipulates and hallucinates his way through the festive period, until he finally meets his match… himself. Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy) wants a promotion. He is clearly the best man for the job - the rest of his colleagues are just idiots.
Annoyingly, there's been a murder and Bruce's boss wants results. No problem for Bruce. He's in control and when he solves the case and wins the promotion, his wife will return to him. No problem.
But is life that simple? Is Bruce the man he really thinks he is? The tragic, hilarious and memorable answers unfold in FILTH...
Directed by Jon S. Baird from his own screenplay, FILTH stars James McAvoy in the leading role with a supporting cast that includes Jamie Bell, Jim Broadbent, Imogen Poots, Eddie Marsan, Joanne Froggatt, Gary Lewis, Emun Elliott and John Sessions.
