From acclaimed writer-director Gerard Johnson (Hyena, Tony) comes a psychological thriller that’s dripping in sweat, tears and testosterone… Muscle is the story of Simon (Cavan Clerkin, The Last Kingdom, The Capture, Pulling, The Inbetweeners, Smack the Pony, The IT Crowd, Jonathan Creek, Look Around You, Gangster No 1, Spivs, Pierrepoint) an unhappy, unambitious office worker whose life is gradually taken over by Terry (Craig Fairbrass, Villain, Rise of the Footsoldier) his new, hands-on personal trainer who reveals himself to be more committed, and more dangerous, than Simon could have ever imagined.
Simon isn’t living the life he wants. He’s tired of his dead-end job at a call centre – and he isn’t even any good at it. He and his girlfriend are painfully drifting apart, he’s sick of his life and it’s time to make a change and hit the gym. But everything spins out of control when he draws the attention of Terry, who offers to coach him, and quickly becomes his boss, friend and roommate.
Soon, Simon finds himself trapped in a self-destructive spiral with every aspect of his life resting in Terry’s hands, and no way out. With searing energy, incredible performances and a new soundtrack by the legendary THE THE, Muscle is the most original, must-see British film of the year.
