Idris Elba’s directorial debut sees a young man try to settle old scores in a new country.

UK 2018
Dir Idris Elba
With Aml Ameen, Stephen Graham, Fraser James, Shantol Jackson
Certificate 15

It’s Jamaica 1973 when we meet music-loving MC Dennis/D in his lush but dangerous stomping ground, navigating a world of violent political gangs. When he witnesses his beloved brother’s assassination, his lust for revenge leads him to the underworld of London, England – the Motherland. This gangster flick viscerally resurrects London’s urban grime with the help of a stonking soundtrack and a seductive dancehall scene. Yardie provides a rare big-screen release for a supreme black British cast; Aml Ameen’s portrayal of D proves a coming-of-age for this young talent, while a mesmerising Shantol Jackson steals every scene.
