Layer Cake (2004)

An unnamed mid-level cocaine dealer (Daniel Craig) in London makes plans to step away from the criminal life. Before he can cut ties, the dealer's supplier Jimmy Price (Kenneth Cranham) draws him into a complicated pair of jobs involving kidnapping the teenage daughter of a rival gangster (Michael Gambon) and brokering the purchase of a large shipment of ecstasy pills from a dealer known as "the Duke" (Jamie Foreman), leading to a series of elaborate double-crosses from all corners.

British Academy of Film & Television Arts (2004) Nominated Carl Foreman Award for Special Achievement by a Director, Writer or Producer in Their First Feature Film
