About a group of twenty something black Londoners struggling to make it.
17 May 2008 | by justinemmanuelSee all my reviews

I found this to be a really memorable film. I was a black twenty something struggling to make it in London at the time and it hit closer to me that I would of liked it too. I felt that its strengths were the outrageous characters that were essentially spoiling the lives of 'normal' people. The film spends the whole while building up the problem as these youngsters get themselves deeper and deeper into trouble. Doing things that "I really would not do" to get themselves out. While I normally don't like that sort of formula, for me, in this film, it really worked. I thought that it was so funny. Not a high brow film, but really enjoyable, I whole heartedly recommend seeing it, particularly if you are black from London and are a guy.
