After surviving a gang rape and mugging, a middle aged businesswoman and her 23 year old boyfriend plot to murder their attackers, but find themselves conflicted about carrying out their plans.
'Straightheads' was funded partly with £500,000 lottery money, provided by the UK Film Council.
When the main characters are driving through the woods after the sex scene, they hit a deer which completely smashes the windscreen. Immediately afterward, there is an attack scene, where she is dragged from the car after the windscreen is entirely smashed through. In a shot of the car, the number plate is hanging off, blood is on the windows and the windscreen is shattered. In the next scene, Danny Dyer is seen turning the alarm in the car off with the number plate attached, no blood or dents on the car and a completely intact windscreen which is almost shinier than before.
This film is dedicated to the memory of TOM GRAFTON 1973-2001
