The Night Before

A rather different festive film as a little boy, disillusioned with Christmas after his family start bickering over the preparations for it, turns his back on the season of goodwill and cheer to all men.

Essex Boys: The Truth
No, not a warts and all expose of the male members of the TOWIE cast, but a documentary that looks at ten of the bloodiest years in UK gangland history.
On December 6th 1995, three members of the notorious Essex Boys firm were brutally executed in the most infamous gangland murders in British history. Immediately the lies and deceit started from those who wished to distance themselves from matters arising for this terrible event and those who for their own reasons wanted to associate themselves with the dead men.
