Acclaimed British filmmaker Shane Meadows (DEAD MAN'S SHOES, TWENTY FOUR SEVEN) steps outside his familiar Midlands for his first film set in London, SOMERS TOWN, a rites of passage drama that elaborates on the themes of the director's earlier A ROOM FOR ROMEO BRASS and THIS IS ENGLAND.

THIS IS ENGLAND's phenomenal Thomas Turgoose stars as Tomo, who, having runaway from his native Nottingham, finds himself on the streets of London's King's Cross. It isn't long before he becomes friends with Marek (Piotr Jagiello), a young Polish immigrant who lives nearby. While this unlikely pair seems to have little in common at first, it isn't long before they realise the trials and tribulations of youth transcend cultural boundaries and both begin to harbour desires for a beautiful young waitress who works in their local cafe.

Meadows effortlessly crafts another poignant tale that addresses the obstacles youngsters face when making the transition from child to adult in SOMERS TOWN; a film that ranks alongside the director's best work. Turgoose--who was a revelation in 2006's THIS IS ENGLAND--is an engaging lead, ably supported by newcomer Jagiello, consolidating Meadows' reputation as an incredible director of younger actors.
Natasha Braier's stunning black and white photography showcases a London that's not been seen in decades, providing an exquisite backdrop against which this intensely involving drama plays out.
