Writer/director Shola Amoo offers a highly stylised but heartfelt account of Femi
7 December 2019 | by babybuletganiSee all my reviews

Writer/director Shola Amoo offers a highly stylised but heartfelt account of Femi (Sam Adewunmi), a young black British male who's struggling to make sense of his identity in the early noughties. We first meet our protagonist in an idyllic rural Lincolnshire, where he lives with his white foster mum - until his Nigerian birth mother (Gbemisola Ikumelo) takes him to a new home on a tough south London estate. Its strength is less in its plotting than in the expressionistic use of images and sounds to convey Femi's first-hand experiences, right through to the unexpected coda in Lagos.
