Somers Town

Synopsis

The latest film from BAFTA award winning director Shane Meadows sees him reunited with Thomas Turgoose, the young star of the internationally acclaimed This is England. Shot in stunning black and white on location in the area of North London that the film takes its name from, Somers Town is Meadows' first film to be set outside the Midlands.

Turgoose plays Tomo, a troubled young lad who's run away to London. There he meets Marek, a shy Polish teenager who shares a small flat with his labourer father in a rundown area. When Marek agrees to let Tomo stay with them, unbeknownst to his father, the pair form a strong bond as they work odd jobs for an eccentric neighbour and compete for the attention of Maria, a beautiful French waitress, and try to avoid discovery by Marek's father.
