The movie is based on Ken Bruen’s novel of the same name, and centers on a London criminal newly released from prison who becomes involved with a reclusive young actress. As you can see from the trailer, Farrell stars as the guy from the wrong side of the tracks and Knightley is the haughty star who he gets involved with.

On an interesting side note, the film is written and directed by William Monahan. The Oscar winning scribe behind 2006′s The Departed. Besides Farrell and Knightley the usual UK actors make appearances in the movie  including Ray Winstone, Stephen Graham, Anna Friel, David Thewlis, and even Jamie Campbell Bower gets in on the action.

London Boulevard is scheduled to hit UK theaters on November 26th but no release date has been set for the U.S.
