Fiction / English

A ruling class sociopath kills a working class girl in a hit-and-run then determines his fate with a deck of cards.

Charlie Barnum (Emmett J Scanlan) is an erudite, harmless, fast-talking egotist, who refuses to be bound by the restrictions of morality, law or even reality. You’ve already met Walter Mitty and Billy Liar, but now it’s time for you to meet the darkest member of that twisted trio; the man of our times, Charlie Casanova. An assured debut from Terry McMahon.

    I don't really get the Walter Mitty and Billy Liar comments so advise against going along with them in mind. It is, however, a good film - http://flickfeast.co.uk/reviews/film-reviews/charlie-casanova-2010/
