Essex Boys Team Up in Gypsy Flick

Daily Echo: A scene from Traveller A scene from Traveller

MUSICIAN, singer-songwriter and actor David Essex visits Hampshire to introduce his new film tonight.

Traveller will be shown at Fareham’s Reel Cinema at 7.30pm and the heartthrob will also be signing copies of his new album, Reflections.

Two worlds collide in Traveller, an action-packed tale of violence, corruption and the little known world of the traveller community starring Essex and his son Billy Cook.

In his feature debut Billy Cook plays Owen McBride, a young man, half-gyspy, half “gorgio” (non gypsy), torn between two ways of life. When he saves a stranger’s life he gets caught up in a lifethreatening situation.

With a gang of violent gangsters and the police on his tail he is forced to go into hiding at his deceased father’s gypsy site, under the watchful eye of Blackberry (David Essex). He takes on a job training wild horses and learns the ways of gypsy life, but his situation is made more dangerous when he forms an unusual alliance with a young female police officer (Kerrie Hayes – The Mill).

The action is non-stop, with bare-knuckle fights, and violent confrontations as well as an off-limits encounter with a beautiful gypsy woman.
