Running Time: 102 Mins

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: Fashion executive Deeva (Nagra) returns home to the UK when her brother is arrested for a fatal gang shooting in East London.  Convinced of his innocence, Deeva takes it upon herself to investigate, only to uncover a much wider conspiracy surrounding the shooting.

A London based conspiracy movie from the mind of Paul Abbot (Shameless, State Of Play), TWENTY8K is an engrossing, albeit predictable little thriller that is as absurd as it is interesting.

The main problem with the film’s narrative is that it takes a massive leap of logic in its opening 10 minutes, by having its lead character Deeva (played by Bend It Like Beckham’s Parminder Nagra) automatically turn from Paris-based fashion executive into a bonafide private investigator in the blink of an eye. »
