Full Plot

Mitchel ('Colin Farrell' (qv)) just got out of jail and wants to stay legitimate but his friends involved in the messy London underground fear him and wants him to join them again but Mitchel tries his best to stay away. He gets himself a job as a bodyguard for a retired actress Charlotte ('Keira Knightley' (qv)) who is still hot news for the paparazzi. Mitchell, through his friend Billy eventually meets the underground Don by the name of Gant ('Ray Winstone (I)' (qv)) who wants Mitch to work for him because of Mitch's reputations. While working together Mitch and Charlotte fall in love. Gant asks Billy to get the guy who sent Mitch to jail but it turns out to be the wrong one, Gant kills the guy in front of Mitch and lets Mitch know that he has to work for him now that Mitch has seen him commit the murder but Mitch refuses. Gant keeps trying to force Mitch to his side promising him good ranks and positions but he has to let go of Charlotte but Mitch turns him down even threatens him to stop trying making Gant really angry. Now Mitch has to suffer the consequences. Mahdi Fresh out of prison, Michael wants nothing to do with crime, but he accepts a kip from Billy, a marginal grafter, and accompanies Billy on rent-collection trips. He's also old school, wanting revenge on two youths for assaulting a mendicant he's befriended. He's got a strung-out sister to protect, and he's offered a job protecting a famous actress from paparazzi. The plot lines join when Michael finds himself attracted to the actress and Billy's Mob boss, Gant, finds ways to force Michael work for him. He also warns Michael off revenge against the assailants of his friend. What are Michael's options: is there any way to avoid Gant, protect his sister, and find a path to love? Plot not found

[first lines] Jailer: [to Mitchel] You. You're out. Charlotte: Do you like violence? Mitchel: I will hurt someone before they hurt me. Dr. Raju: My wife was a very shrewish woman. I told her finally, I love you, but I want to enjoy my life. She was more outraged by that than anything I'd ever said to her. Gant: You're an accessory now. It's a little like being married, you know, it's for life. Gant: You really think I'm gonna to let you walk free 'round this fucking planet? It ain't gonna happen. Mitchel: See, what you have to understand is that if I were a gangster - Rob - you would be the first to fucking die. I wouldn't work for you. I would kill you and take everything you've got - if I were a gangster. That's why you don't want me to be a gangster. Nobody wants me to be a gangster. 'Cause I couldn't stop if I started. Do you get it? Mitchel: Don't ask again. [last lines] Whiteboy: Heard you been lookin' for me... Charlotte: Do you know what a woman's for in film? Mitchel: Go on, then. Charlotte: What this job is that I'm supposed to want? Mitchel: I'm listening. Charlotte: A woman is there to get the hero to talk about himself. About his hopes, about his fears, maybe even about his fascinating, fucking childhood.

- The Chinese words on the package are the title of "The Departed", which is written by William Monahan as well. Infernal Affairs (the movie The Departed was based on) was incorrectly called "a Japanese film" during the 79th Academy Awards; Jordan emphasizes "he got it from Hong Kong" here.

- The book that Gant is reading in bed near the end of the film is the Penguin edition of "The Social Contract" by Rousseau.
