Part of: Chester Film Society at 50

Directed by Mike Hodges
Starring Michael Caine, Ian Hendry, Britt Ekland 

Legendary British star Sir Michael Caine is Jack Carter, the London gangland enforcer who returns to his hometown of Newcastle to avenge his brother’s untimely death. 

Rarely has the criminal underworld been so realistically portrayed than in this 1971 masterpiece. Shot on location, resulting in a devastatingly authentic snapshot of life in the north east of England in the late-industrial period, Get Carter remains arguably the grittiest and greatest of all British crime films.  

There will be a short recorded introduction by Michael Caine before the film.

This film has been selected by Chester Film Society to celebrate their 5oth season. Between June and September the society have chosen some significant films from the past five decades to mark their anniversary.
