This intelligent urban drama made a star of young MC Ashley Walters.
Dir Saul Dibb
With Ashley Walters, Luke Fraser, Clare Perkins
An unusually intelligent story about gang life, Bullet Boy made a film star of Ashley Walters, the young MC who had already entered the public eye with UK garage collective So Solid Crew. Having grown up in south London, Walters brought huge presence and authenticity to a film that transcended the clichés of urban crime drama – and launched a screen career that still thrives today.
Also available on BFI Player.
The screening on Saturday 6 October features a Q&A with actor Ashley Walters (work permitting).
