This is a movie that will show you the best and the worst of human nature and make you feel. That is a good thing.
"The moments of change, they're what give your life its shape, its form, but it only takes one of them to define you and that'll be the only thing you're remembered for and you know it." Three very different people are living out their lives over the course of a few days in London. From a former Rugby legend trying to save his marriage to a depressed cab driver to a gang member trying to straighten his life out, it is amazing the lives that people can live so close to each other yet never meet. This is a good movie with great acting that is so emotional that it's hard to keep up with everything going on. Much like the movie Crash the movie tackles real issues (though not as heavy as Crash) and makes you see and feel exactly what the intent is. Elba is tremendous in this and his character is so complex you aren't sure whether to root for him or not. That adds a whole dimension to the movie that is important. This is a movie that will show you the best and the worst of human nature and make you feel. That is a good thing. Overall, a good movie that explores many facets of humanity, but at the same time doesn't really say anything new. I did like it though. I give this a B.
