  • Shane Meadows takes a break from gritty fare such as THIS IS ENGLAND to direct this fun, sweet comedy. Thomas Turgoose (the star of THIS IS ENGLAND) takes on the role of Tomo, a runaway teen who finds himself in London with no place to stay. But soon he finds a friend in a Polish boy named Marek (Piotr Jagiello), and he lets Tomo live with him, without his father's permission. Shot in black and white in a naturalistic style, SOMERS TOWN played to acclaim at festivals including Edinburgh and Tribeca.

  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "Meadows' on-the-hoof style teases truths from the set-up, ushering the leads to a point where their friendship seems of-the-moment and at once exuberant, witty and wistful."
    Total Film

    3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith vivid black-and-white cinematography and Meadows' lingering direction, it recalls the work of the French New Wave."

    "Shane Meadows has a rare ability to convey the drama and humor of everyday life in well-observed, well-acted scenes....A movie that feels enjoyably aimless -- one that invites viewers to just hang out for an hour." -- Grade: B+
    A.V. Club

    "SOMERS TOWN is a funny and endearing character study....[The director] never rushes the scenes or his naturalistic actors yet packs in more memorable moments here than most movies twice this one's length."
