The Hot Potato Information

Hot Potato}}

The Hot Potato is a comedy crime thriller film from 2011. It was directed and written by Tim Lewiston and stars Ray Winstone, Colm Meaney and Jack Huston in the lead roles. This British film is a throwback to the crime caper films that were popular in the 1960s and pays homage to several of these, including The Italian Job.


One evening of 1969, a Ministry of Defence's facility in London is completely destroyed by a huge explosion. To their surprise, Danny (Jack Huston) and Kenny (Ray Winstone) come into possession of a strange object from the blast; a large lump of solid Uranium which looks remakably like a hot potato.

The pair quickly learn of their find's potentional worth as well as its radioactive dangers. With the aid of Danny's girlfriend, Carole (Lois Winstone) the three set off on an adventure, dodging police and other sinister criminals also on the hunt for this prized find.
