It Was An Accident
Nicky Burkett, still incarcerated at the end of Vinnie Got Blown Away, is released on to the streets of Walthamstow in It Was An Accident. He wants to go straight. Noreen wants him to go straight and she won’t go near him if he doesn’t. He tries. But events and people conspire against him. He is offered “work”. He is attacked. His mates are attacked. He runs to Jamaica and is attacked again. Then the fight back begins.
Filmed starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Max Beesley and James Bolam, It Was an Accident received fulsome reviews and brought fame to Walthamstow. Again it featured those on the fringes of society, defending themselves and their borough against bigger villains from elsewhere. The violent climax brings a new aspect to greyhound racing. And the sex is funny as always.
