Yardie

Director: Idris Elba
Starring: Everaldo Creary, Aml Ameen
Duration: 102 min


On a hot night in Jamaica in 1973, a young boy, Denis, proudly watches his older brother DJ’ing at a party to broker a truce between warring gangs. Then shots ring out. His brother is dead. A decade later, Denis is the right-hand man to gang boss King Fox, who sends him on a mission to London to test his loyalty. When the job goes wrong, Denis hides out with an old flame, only to discover that his brother’s killer may be in the same city. Based on the cult novel by Victor Headley, Idris Elba’s directorial debut fuses the hard-boiled gangster genre with a coming-of-age period piece. With an evocative soundtrack and an astute eye for detail, Elba expertly captures the spirit of the times.
