Shane Richie spent £500,000 of his own money (he had to re-mortgage his house to put money into this project) to make this film and when it was released it showed in 2 cinemas and got an audience of 300 people making £2,272 in its first week of release then it closed. See more »
I found Shoreditch to be a film with a great deal of potential, but it was lacking in a great many areas. The film had an interesting storyline, but didn't follow through with a dynamic script. The plot was slow and confusing at times, and I felt that the film lacked direction. I also found that there was not enough character development, especially of Shane Richie's and Joely Richardson's characters. On the other hand, however, the overall standard of acting was good, and the cinematography and music scores were impressive. I am glad that I went to see this film, and although I have a fair many criticisms to make about Shoreditch, I don't think it was that bad. One to re-make in the future perhaps!!!
