The Guardian have issued the debut trailer for Revolver Entertainment’s upcoming crime-thriller Ill Manors, due for release in the U.K. on June 6.
Written and directed by British musician Ben Drew (aka Plan B), Ill Manors follows six individuals from different backgrounds, all struggling to survive the circles of violence that engulfs the Forest Hill area of London where they all reside.
Featuring a cast of up-and-comers, including Riz Ahmed, Nathalie Press and Ed Skrein, and brand new music from Plan B, the film looks to highlight the real-life struggles people face in their day-to-day lives, irregardless of their backgrounds, race, sexuality and positions within society.
While there was definitely an air of uncertainty as to whether Drew had the level of sincerity and competence needed to make such an ambitious project, these minor hesitations have been lessened and replaced with anticipation after such a commanding trailer as the one posted today.
