Member Exclusive: County Lines
Writer-director Henry Blake delivers a highly topical drama about child exploitation and drug trafficking.
Dir Henry Blake
With Conrad Khan, Ashley Madekwe, Harris Dickinson
A BFI release
County Lines, which received its world premiere at the 2019 BFI London Film Festival, is an original and stylish drama about a struggling mum (Madekwe) and her 14-year-old son Tyler (a compelling performance from newcomer Conrad Khan), who’s groomed (by a chilling Harris Dickinson) and recruited into a lethal drug-selling network – a ‘county line’ that exploits vulnerable children and puts them to work nationwide. Inspired by his first-hand experience as a youth worker in the UK, Blake’s authentic and sensitive thriller has a huge heart, delivers a respectful and optimistic message, and boasts powerful performances all round.
