Gangster. Media Darling. Model Citizen.
Eddie Boyd (Scott Speedman, The Moth Diaries, The Strangers), a Canadian World War II veteran faced with postwar economic hardships, turns to robbing banks to support his wife (Kelly Reilly, Sherlock Holmes) and children. The ensuing life of crime and notoriety suits the charismatic Boyd, who soon finds a crew to help him pull the biggest heist in Toronto history. But an unprecedented manhunt for the robbers quickly puts all of their lives in jeopardy, and with life on the lam tearing his own marriage apart, Boyd finds he's risking more than just money on his wayward path to becoming a folk antihero. Based on the true story of Toronto's most famous criminal and infused with impeccable period detail, Citizen Gangster is an intense crime drama that thrills from start to finish.
