The Legend of Barney Thomson

de Robert Carlyle


Barney Thomson is an unsuccessful barber who accidentally kills his boss. This involuntary murder places him in the crosshairs of the Glasgow police, desperate to find a serial killer who’s fond of dismembering his victims. Good thing Barney has his mum (an unforgettable Emma Thompson) to clean up his bumbling trail of blood.
