Synopsis

I'll Sleep When I'm Dead is a taut, provocative character-driven thriller about contemporary life, justice and revenge. Will Graham (Clive Owen), a legendary London gangster, has given up the crime life to seek solace in the rural forest-land of North West Wales. His past will always affect him - he hardly sleeps; works without credentials - as he tries to make peace with himself.

His young, womanising, street-smart brother Davey (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers), to whom he's devoted, is a dashing, minor criminal. After scoring a deal and partying late into the night, he's followed home and attacked.

Sensing something is amiss, Will is pulled back to the city. Shocked and distraught, Will's antennae are re-tuned to the rush of London as he begins to investigate the disturbing event.

He seeks the counsel of his former gang-mates, ignites the jealousy of crime boss Turner (Ken Stott), visits the distressed Mrs Bartz (Sylvia Syms), tracks the mysterious Boad (Malcolm McDowell) and rekindles his relationship with Helen (Charlotte Rampling), the wise, romantic restauranteur.
