English actor Paddy Considine (In America, The Death of Stalin, Pride) has shown to have incredible acting versatility. And now he is proving his skills behind the camera as well.

Following "Tyrannosaur," his acclaimed 2011 film debut as a writer and director, Considine scores a unique filmmaking hat-trick by writing, directing and also starring in "Journeyman," a touching drama about a professional middleweight boxer who finds himself on a long and grueling road to recovery after suffering a debilitating brain injury.

"Broadchurch" actress Jodie Whittaker (who was just cast as the next "Doctor Who") co-stars as Considine's supportive wife in the upcoming tearjerker, which has recently received its first international trailer.

Co-starring Anthony Welsh, Tony Pitts, and Paul Popplewell, "Journeyman" will open in the U.K. on February 16, 2018.

synopsis:
Journeyman tells the story of middleweight boxing champion Matty Burton (Paddy Considine). After winning a punishing title defense on points, Matty collapses at home. The journey towards regaining his speech, movement and memory will be the toughest fight he’ll ever face, and the prize could not be greater, for his relationship with his wife Emma (Jodie Whittaker) and baby daughter Mia are on the line… Journeyman is a powerful and beautiful story about loss and, ultimately, triumph. It's about our identity, and how in life we sometimes have to dig deep into our soul to discover who we really are.
