Steve Coogan's Manchester movie goes on Parole
Steve Coogan as Simon Garden in The Parole Officer

Steve Coogan stars as Simon Garden, the non-too-successful Blackpool parole officer who has only managed to rehabilitate three criminals in his whole career. Dispatched to the Manchester office, he gets framed for a murder he didnít commit. The only way to prove his innocence is to rob a bank to retrieve a crucial piece of evidence. But he canít do this alone, so turns to those who he believes know best Ė his former clients Ė persuading them to return to their lives of crime for one last job. This is Steve's first full length feature film and also stars Om Puri (East is East) and Steven Dillane (Welcome To Sarajevo). . SEE OUR STEVE COOGAN PAGES
