Washed-up Richard Thorncroft (Julian Barratt) peaked with hit 1980s detective show Mindhorn, playing the titular Isle of Man sleuth with a robotic eye that allowed him to literally “see the truth”. Decades later, when a deranged Manx criminal demands Mindhorn as his nemesis, Thorncroft returns to the scene of his greatest triumphs for one last chance to reignite his glory days, professional credibility and even romance with former co-star/paramour Patricia Deville (Essie Davis).
Directed by Sean Foley, the film stars Julian Barratt, Andrea Riseborough, Essie Davis, Russell Tovey, David Schofield, Kenneth Branagh, Simon Callow, and Steve Coogan.
I love the look of this. Always a fan of Julian Barratt, who is an extremely nice chap, and I think this will be a lot of fun.
