Tomo (Thomas Turgoose - This is England), just turned sixteen and released from social care, runs away to London from a lonely, difficult life in the Midlands. Marek (Piotr Jagiello), a Polish immigrant, lives with his father, who drinks with his friends most evenings after working on a construction site. Marek is a keen photographer, quiet and sensitive - he is not comfortable in his father's world.
Both struggle to make sense of their new world and a chance meeting in Somers Town, London, leads the two to form an unexpected partnership. In equal parts moving and hilarious, Somers Town is a lo-fi masterpiece from Shane Meadows, the director who brought us This Is England and Dead Man's Shoes and Paul Fraser, the writer of Dead Man's Shoes and A Room For Romeo Brass.

yeah, not much for your money on this one. However Shane Meadows does some good stuff, i was waiting for this to drop before i added it to my collection. Thanks


Shane Meadows, and £5 cheaper than anywhere else. This should be scorching. Excellent post spud131

Great but gentle movie shot mainly in B&W so not for everyone.

Shane Meadows and Nick Love are legends. HOT!

Loved all his other stuff, but this was very poor, like watching a boring day in the life of a nobody.

Cool little movie which was intended as a promo for a railway company.

If you like Meadows's early work there's a lot to enjoy.

Couldn't believe this is so cheap - it only came out last year!
