Storyline

Benji is a nerdy boy from the Somerleyton Estate in Brixton. He spends his days keeping his stoner best friend Arch out of trouble. Leah is a wealthy young YouTuber, obsessed with street culture. They fall in love, but when they tempt each other into increasingly reckless behaviour for the sake of their documentary, they blur the lines between image and reality, between collaboration and exploitation, and their lives spiral out of control.

Amazing Filmmaking
14 February 2021 | by rosethreetimesSee all my reviews

Off just one viewing I have to say I admire everything that's in this movie. Great story, characters, performances, cinematography, everything about this movie I enjoyed. Can't wait for the next project from Darragh Carey and Bertrand Desrochers.
