Description by Weinstein Company/Genius:
THE BUSINESS is a gritty, action-packed gangster film in the tradition of Layer Cake and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Young Frankie escapes the London slums for the sun-drenched beaches of Spain with a delivery for powerful crime boss Charlie. Charlie takes Frankie under his wing and immerses him for a life of drugs, money, women and guns. But when the good life spins out of control with double-crossing, revenge and murder, Frankie soon realizes he's in over his head. With more cocaine than CASINO, more guns than GOODFELLAS, more swearing than SCARFACE - (Front Magazine), THE BUSINESS is one wild ride!
