INTERVIEW: Michael Caine talks playing vigilante ‘Harry Brown’

It took Michael Caine years of hard work to get out of his South London neighborhood.

It took one movie to get him back.

“Harry Brown,” which opened Friday in New York, features the actor living in a dismal housing project (not “500 yards from where I grew up,” he says). And living in fear, surrounded by thugs.

Until Mr. Brown decides to get a gun, and do a little urban renewal of his own.

The result is a violent, vicariously thrilling revenge movie — think “Gran Torino,” but with pints of lager — and a plum part for the inimitable Caine, 77, who called recently to talk about past hardships, present politics and the love of his life.
