Storyline

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 Anonymous

Brilliant
27 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seen this film at Sundance and was absolutely amazed by the acting in it. This film is so authentic, I loved that some of the cast are people from the streets of London. Listening to the director even prior to the screening talk about being excited screening in front of "real" people instead of the usual Sundance industry crowd was refreshing. Can't wait for some of her other stuff. The film feature some amazing cinematography. The scene with the younger brother on the tree with use of sunlight is beautiful.

See this film and watch out for everyone involved.

P.S. I cannot believe Fady Elsayed who played the younger brother hasn't acted before. That guys gonna be a star!
