The Wee Man

The Bafta Scotland award-winning film The Wee Man has an all-star Scottish cast led by Martin Compston (The Disappearance of Alice Creed, Sweet Sixteen, TV’s Line of Duty), John Hannah (The Mummy trilogy, Four Weddings and a Funeral, TV’s Spartacus), Denis Lawson (Perfect Sense, Star Wars trilogy, TV’s New Tricks), Lorna McMonagle (TV’s Lip Service), Clare Grogan (Gregory’s Girl) and Stephen McCole (Neds, TV’s Single Father). The Wee Man is based on the extraordinary and well-documented life story of the reformed Glaswegian gangster Paul Ferris. The film follows Paul (Martin Compston) growing up an ordinary young child with decent, hardworking parents in the notorious area of Blackhill, Glasgow and the journey through his teenage years to manhood.
The Scottish Sun called the film “Scotland’s most controversial film in decades” whilst Empire magazine described it as “a crunching Glasgow kiss of a gangster movie.”
