Featuring cinematography from Richard Mott, The Corrupted is a 2019 crime drama directed by Ron Scalpello (My Name is Lenny) and stars Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games, Me Before You), Charlie Murphy (Peaky Blinders, Happy Valley), Timothy Spall (Sweeney Todd, The King’s Speech, Harry Potter) and Hugh Bonneville (Notting Hill, Downton Abbey).

 

The narrative centres around life in London when Britain was finalising their bid to host the 2012 Olympic Games. Low-value land in the East End became prime real estate over-night and The Corrupted follows ex-convict, Liam (Claflin), trying to win back his family after falling in with the wrong crowd.

 

The Hollywood Reporter states “cinematographer Richard Mott makes good use of East London’s post-regeneration zones as visual backdrop – not just the shiny new Olympic Park area but also other high-rise developments that have begun crowding the city’s skyline in recent years”, while The Guardian boasts Richard Mott’s framing of the capital’s moneyed hotspots are “striking”.

 

The Corrupted is in cinemas now. Watch the trailer HERE
