If you're a fan of Catherine Zeta-Jones, you may be interested in this film. The young (26 at the time of the film's release) Catherine plays Russian Empress Catherine as she rises to power followed by the early years of her reign. A history course this is not, as the major events of 18th-century Russia are merely "Oh, by the ways."

As a teenager in 1950, Derek (Christopher Eccleston) finds he can make easy money by joining a group of London's street toughs. However, when petty crimes turn into murder, Derek is faced with a death sentence for a crime he did not commit. Well-made film from the UK.
