Goodbye Charlie Bright
Goodbye Charlie Bright is a fairytale about the friendship between two teenage boys from a South London council estate. Set in the middle of a long, hot summer it charts the way the close yet volatile relationship between Charlie and Justin reaches breaking point and ultimately changes forever.
As Charlie watches one of his mates leave to join the army, he starts to question where his own life is heading, but for the time being is kept busy looking after Justin who is constantly dragging him into trouble at any opportunity.
As the baking summer reaches boiling point, Charlie becomes desperate to find a way out, and when Justin decides to take the law into his own hands after a mate is hurt in a hit and run accident, Charlie realises that in order to make something out of his life, he must sacrifice their friendship.
Goodbye Charlie Bright is set within a warm and friendly community with mellow sounds of music drifting in the summer breeze. Always conscious of style, Charlie and his mates are designer boys, taking pride in what they wear and how they wear it.
Above all, Goodbye Charlie Bright is a funny and heartfelt story of friendship and the pains of growing up.
