Shola Amoo’s new film picked-up two British Independent Film Awards for its actors last month. It is an absorbing and moving story based on Amoo’s own childhood.
Femi is a British-Nigerian boy brought up by a white foster mother in Lincolnshire. When he is 11 his birth mother takes him to live on an estate in south London. It is a story about isolation, identity, spirituality and masculinity. Sam Adewunmi, as Femi, delivers an assured debut.
