King of the Travellers (15)


In the Travelling community, a young man must put his past behind him and settle a long running feud between two families so he can be with the love of his life.

The critical consensus

Underwhelming tale of torn loyalty, forbidden love, revenge and betrayal.

**(*)(*)(*)Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 28/03/2013

Bog standard is the word for this.
