A Way of Life
Amma Asante
Long | Royaume-Uni | 2004
avec Brenda Blethyn

 

 

 

descriptif

RĂ©alisatrice : Amma Asante

2004, Royaume Uni, Fiction

A WAY OF LIFE centres on teenage mother Leigh-Anne Williams (Stephanie James); her brother Gavin (Nathan Jones), a seventeen year old desperately chasing love, and her two friends Robbie (Gary Sheppeard), a seventeen year old determined to move beyond his dead-end community and Stephen (Dean Wong), a fifteen year old yearning for a Welse identity. All of them function along the margins of society...until one day, paranoid, boredom, frustration and anger form a lethal combination. When her baby girl's future appears threatened, Leigh-Anne's Turkish Muslim neighbour becomes the target of pent up anger and humiliation. A ferocious murder takes place which is seemingly driven by racial hatred and in a moment, the four teenagers seal their fate.

A violent yet powerful story of a young mother and her child, of teenage romance and friendship. A WAY OF LIFE draws you into a world of poverty, love, tenderness and hurt...a world which will challenge the way you look at life.
