CINEWORLD LEICESTER SQUARE
FRIDAY 25TH AUGUST
Director: Dominic Bridges. With: Mim Shaikh, Javier Botet, Mandeep Dhillon, Kola Bokinni, Michael McKell. UK 2017. 80 mins.
The feature debut from acclaimed commercials director Dom Bridges and written by Rae Brunton (the OUPOST franchise) is a dark urban morality tale with an underlying streak of jet black comedy. Hussein, a wide-boy estate agent, doesn't realise he's sharing his apartment with a forgotten stranger, a master of concealment... until his malicious campaign of deranged sweet revenge starts to really hit home. A roof above our heads is a basic human need so why are we all fighting each other over it? A genre riff on home invasion chillers and a searing comment on the cut-throat housing market.
