Frustrated with his financial situation and public indifference towards veterans, WWII vet Edwin Boyd turns to robbing banks to support his family and gain notoriety."Based on the true story of Edwin Boyd, the man who became postwar Toronto's most famous criminal, CITIZEN GANGSTER is a powerful tale of one man's rise from obscurity to criminal celebrity and the dangerous price he pays for it. Eddie Boyd (Scott Speedman, The Moth Diaries, The Strangers), has returned from WWII and is dismayedby public indifference towards veterans and humiliated by his inability to fulfill his dream of being a Hollywood star. Moreover, his veteran status has done nothing to help him provide for his children and wife Doreen (Kelly Reilly, Sherlock Holmes). Seeing only disappointment in the face of his policeman father (Brian Cox, Zodiac), Eddie becomesdesperate and starts to rob banks. But what starts as friendly and flirtatious robberies evolves over time into a career not unlike that of Clyde Barrow or Butch Cassidy, in which crime and love mix with explosive results."
