Jack O'Connell stars in a new prison blockbuster

A new film based in a London prison is set to stir debate about the rehabilitation of violent prisoners - that is the ambition of its writer Jonathan Asser.

Asser who previously worked as a therapist in Wandsworth Prison wrote the Starred Up script based on his experiences and it has won him the best newcomer award at the London Film Festival.

Brenda Emmanus caught up with both writer Asser and lead, Jack O'Connell ahead of the film's release on the big screen next week.
