As Margaret’s plans and Zoe’s true motivation are slowly revealed, shocking facts emerge and the characters are drawn into a violent and horrifying conclusion. Two Graves marks the directorial debut of writer Gary Young who also penned the Michael Caine crime flick, Harry Brown (2009). #BritFlicks #TwoGraves #BritshGangsterFilm
