Amber Rose Revah,
The end time has come and gone. One year on, four teenagers stalk an empty future as potentially the last people left alive. But even with all the space in the world, there's still not enough room for everyone.
Mo is a young boy growing up in a traditional Egyptian household, but beyond the front door of the family's modest London flat is a completely different world - the streets of Hackney. The impressionable Mo idolizes his handsome older brother Rashid and wants to follow is his footsteps. However, Rashid, a charismatic and shrewd member of a local gang, wants a different life for his little brother and deals drugs hoping to put Mo through college. One eventful summer, Rashid's sexual awakening forces Mo to confront his own fears and phobias and threatens to tear the brothers apart. Written by
Really enjoyable, great performance from lead actors
I saw the film at Sundance and I really liked it. The film represents a realistic portrayal of inner-city London gangs and the performances of the lead actors are excellent. In particular, the performance of James Floyd, who has a powerful and engaging on-screen presence deserves praise.
Don't be fooled into thinking this is just another low budget London gangs film. It is much more than that and the quality of the cast and crew shines through in the final product. The cinematography gives the film a truly authentic feel, giving it firmer foundations than many others of its kind.
This is definitely worth a watch and I hope the film gets recognised with more awards.
