Outside Bet is a comedy drama following the journey of seven friends during the Fleet Street print workers’ strikes in the 1980s. While money, privatisation, unions and dramatic media evolution start to swirl, the life-long group of friends find themselves at the bad end of a redundancy pay-out and invest their savings into a racehorse – hoping that one final race can turn their fortunes around. The story is one of friendship and overcoming the odds.
The film stars a host of British acting talent including Academy Award nominee Bob Hoskins (Mona Lisa, Made in Dagenham) and BAFTA winner Jenny Agutter (An American Werewolf in London, Equus). Also starring are Emily Atack (“The Inbetweeners”), Calum McNab (The Football Factory, The Firm), BAFTA Rising Star award winner Adam Deacon (Anuvahood, Kidulthood), Vincent Regan (Clash of the Titans, 300), Terry Stone (Shank, Rise of the Footsoldier) and Perry Benson (This is England, Somers Town).
