In the underworld of The Krays, Charles Bronson and Ronnie Biggs in 1970s East-End London, the fast talking, hard drinking Lenny, 6 foot 4 inches of rock hard man, fights for the right to be called ‘The Guv’nor’, the ultimate title of respect, and to win back the hand of his childhood sweetheart, Valerie. But Lenny’s violent reputation precedes him, and a chance encounter with an unstable young man in a nightclub sees Lenny framed for a murder he didn’t commit…
Based on the life of The Guv’nor, Lenny McLean – his biography, The Guv’nor, has sold over 2 million copies – My Name Is Lenny unleashes on us the heart and psyche of the toughest of street fighters. Threatening, unpredictable, protective and a loyal family man, Lenny is a complex amalgam of his upbringing, personal demons and self-preservation.
