| Yardie - Passion project for Idris Elba
Documentary drama, BBC Films / B.F.I. production.

Set in 1970's & 80's Jamaica and London.

The protagonist ('D' or Dennis) is traumatised by his brother's murder, can he forgive or avenge the killer? 'D' is sent to London to deliver a 1KG bag of cocaine. The film had moments of excellence, though I imagine that was due to accomplished editing rather than talented directing. Some of the Rasta dialogue was hard to understand, but stick with it - you'll generally get the gist.

This is an effective commentary on the current state of violent in London / UK.

The themes explored are crime, revenge, family, drugs, and black culture.

Worth a watch.
