Outside Bet

Set against the turbulent mid 1980s of money, privatization, unions and dramatic media evolution: A life-long group of friends find themselves at the bad end of a redundancy pay-out and invest their savings into a racehorse, hoping that one final race can turn their fortunes around.


  • ...top-notch performances from Bob Hoskins and Phil Davis... Tipping its hat toward the traditions of Ealing and the style nostalgia of Quadrophenia, this warm-hearted shaggy-dog story is drenched in well-chosen period music... and played with a sense of both fun and conviction by all involved.

    Mark Kermode, The Guardian
  • There is a certain amount of retro charm to Sacha Bennett’s film..., the nostalgia is as thick as the smoke that pervades every corner of the cockney boozer where the central characters spend their spare time.
