Finally getting a U.S. release via VOD, Canadian import CITIZEN GANGSTER tells the story of Edwin Boyd, Toronto’s most infamous and colorful bank robber. Set in the 40s, Boyd returned home from World War II with hopes of supporting his family by becoming an actor. After being turned away from local acting schools, he applied performance art to bank robbery and captured the imagination of an entire country. Written and directed by NATHAN MORLANDO, the cast features SCOTT SPEEDMAN, KELLY REILLY, KEVIN DURAND, JOSEPH CROSS, WILLIAM MAPOTHER and BRIAN COX.
We sat down recently with SCOTT SPEEDMAN, who talked a bit about the film and shooting on location in Northern Ontario. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
