LONDON TOWN directed by Derrick Borte and shot by Hubert Taczanowski premieres at BFI LFF 2016.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers stars as The Clash’s Joe Strummer.

London, 1979. Margaret Thatcher is now Prime Minister and there’s a significant heightening in social, political and racial unrest. Shay (Daniel Huttlestone) is a bright-eyed teenager attempting to juggle too many suburban familial responsibilities following the departure of his free-spirited mother. When his broken-hearted father is injured at work and Shay finds himself under even more pressure, he decides it’s time to reconnect with his estranged mother. Along the way, he falls for striking, confident punk girl Vivian (Nell Williams) and together they experience that white hot epiphany when a new kind of music sparks teenagers on a profound, life-changing level.

Reviews are IN for Anthropoid…

4 Stars – The Guardian… “the third act takes you by the throat with a gradually mounting tension that explodes into a sustained battery of frazzled nerves and splintering shrapnel.”

4 Stars – Empire Magazine… “Anthropoid contains one of the most authentic and nerve-jangling set-pieces of the year so far.”

Directed by Sean Ellis with Production Design by Morgan Kennedy.
