Somers Town

Release Date: 2009-10-28

Director Shane Meadows (Dead Man’s Shoes, This Is England) has become famous in his native England for award-winning, gritty, low-budget films that have been described as works of “social realism.” Heartwarming, witty, and beautifully shot are a few descriptions you might read about Somers Town, a (mainly) black-and-white film from 2008 that follows young runaway Tomo as he boards a train for London, in search of something that never becomes quite clear. An unlikely friendship with Marek, a Polish kid, is central to the film as the two boys learn valuable lessons about becoming young adults.
