Somers Town

The new film from writer director Shane Meadows is Somers Town.

Two of the best films in recent years for me have been Dead Man's Shoes and This Is England. And with films like Twenty Four Seven and A Room For Romeo Brass there is a body of work there that has proven Meadows as one of the most important independent directors working today.

His films look deep into the human soul, showing that even at the most mundane level powerful stories of friendship, loyalty, regret, loss and love can be found and celebrated.

I'm really excited about this film.

Here's a nice selection of stills from the movie too.
