Paddy Considine has written, directed and acted in this film about a boxer. But it’s not really a film about boxing. The hero, Matty Burton (Considine), is a world middleweight champion from Sheffield whose prime has recently peaked. We see him in the ring just once, for a hard-won title defence during which he sustains a grave brain trauma disrupting his entire life. The real fight is Matty’s struggle for recovery, where victory is turning him back into a functioning husband to his wife Emma (Jodie Whittaker, our current Doctor Who) and a functioning father to their baby girl Mia. His identity as a lover, provider and local hero has been totally dismantled, and we watch him rebuild his own masculinity – a subject that cinema has never handled well. With honest emotions, without show or sentiment, Journeyman is an exception.
