Directed by Idris Elba

Based on the cult novel by Victor Headley, Idris Elba’s stand-out directorial debut fuses the hard-boiled gangster genre with a dramatic coming-of-age period piece, bringing to life characters who struggle to find forgiveness while making their own paths between two worlds. Elba expertly re-creates the atmosphere of the times with an astute eye for detail and an evocative soundtrack that captures the tumultuous spirit of Kingston and London in the ’80s – where identity, culture, and even the cities themselves were in flux.
