An Intriguing and Different Portrayal of London Youth
Sometimes you see film, that stands out from the norm. This is one of them.
The film looks at a group of young Londoners from a rough neighbourhood struggling to make sense of the death of one of their group. - Darren Collins.
At the centre of the story are white working class teenager Leo (Jason Maza) Darren's brother and Leo's black friend Isaiah (Costhi Dowden). While Leo tries to find out the truth behind his brother's death Isaiah accused of the murder is rejected by the community.
I can't say too much about the plot - The story takes us on many intriguing twists and turns and it is the kind of film that if you stick with it will reward you. It has a surprisingly upbeat ending which is full of hope.
I really liked this film. It is intelligently written and superbly acted by the young cast. It is fresh and different.
