Having made an impact at LFF 2011 with her gritty low-budget debut Junkhearts, London-based writer-director Tinge Krishnan returns with a contemporary musical set on the streets of Camden Town.

Dates, Times and Locations:
Fri 12 Oct, 21:00 - Embankment Garden Cinema
Sat 13 Oct, 14:00 - Cineworld Leicester Square

Adapted from Ché Walker’s stage play and retaining Arthur Darvill’s original songs, Krishnan shoots this familiar locale with streets bathed in neon and rich in romantic possibilities. BAFTA winner Michaela Coel lights up the big screen as dedicated and whip-smart single mum Simone whose encounter with the confident yet secretive lothario Raymond, played by The Pass star Arinzé Kene (reprising his role from the Young Vic theatre production), has her head spinning. This charismatic pair lead an all-singing and dancing ensemble populated by a wealth of homegrown talent. Ronke Adekoluejo steals scenes as Simone’s fearless best friend Yvonne, while the volatile Gil (George MacKay) has a score to settle at the bar owned by Barney (Luke Norris). Other faces to note include Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones) and Arsher Ali (The Ritual), with the eclectic soundtrack adding a soulful personality of its own.
