‘A Prayer Before Dawn’ Set For Release July 20th

Based on the international best-selling memoirs by Billy Moore, and starring BAFTA-nominated Joe Cole (‘Peaky Blinders’), ‘A Prayer Before Dawn’, set for release in UK and Irish cinemas on 20 July, is a juggernaut of a movie.

Directed by Jean-Stephane Sauvaire, this true story of young English boxer Billy Moore pulls no punches in its delivery. It has drama, filth, squalor and throughly unpleasant characters. The film places the viewer in the centre of this world, leaving any sane-minded individuals to ask the question: “How could anyone survive such an environment and come out a better person.”

It tells the story of Moore’s plunge into the depths of hell, incarcerated for three years in two of Thailand’s most notorious prisons, his fight with gangs and drugs and his redemption in the unlikely form of kick-boxing and a Muay Thai boxing tournament at the prison. It leads him on a path that eventually saves him.

Cole is simply stunning as the pasty kid among the hardened, tattoo’d gang members as he fights for his life and ultimately their respect.

‘A Prayer Before Dawn’ was produced by Rita Dagher (‘Four Lions’), Sol Papadopolus and Roy Boulter (‘Sunset Song’), Nicholas Simon (‘Avengers: Infinity War’) and executive produced by James Schamus (‘Brokeback Mountain’ and ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’).
