Farrell: a changed man

Colin Farrell and Kiera Knightley star in “London Boulevard” alongside a host of brilliant British actors.

Even Farrell seems to put on a fairly decent Cockney accent. Farrell usually plays American roles but carries off the British accent perfectly.

Knightley, the best known and loved British actress of her era is superb throughout.

The movie is the directorial debut for William Monahan and stars Ray Winstone, Anna Friel, David Thewlis, Jamie Campbell Bower, Ophelia Lovibond and Stephen Graham.

The movie tells the story of a man newly released from prison (Farrell) who falls in love with a reclusive movie star (Knightley) and then finds himself in a duel with a vicious gangster (Winstone).

It is set for release in Britain on November 26.
