A lot of British movies may not bring in the money in the way Hollywood movies do. One thing we can be proud of is the quality of drama on show like this one Looted. Ahead of it’s cinema release Bulldog Film Distribution have released the UK trailer for the upcoming gritty urban drama.
Looted is directed by Rene van Pannevis whose short film JACKED won the BIFA in 2016 and premiered in Berlin. The film is a semi-autobiographical account of Rene’s own experiences with his father – and living on the fringes of a criminal group as a young man.
Rob loves driving and stealing cars, living his life at a hundred miles an hour in the cash-starved port town he calls home. He shares a house with his dying father who thinks he’s out job hunting. Rob manages to keep his two worlds perfectly separated until best mate Leo gets him involved in a bigger, riskier job which goes terribly wrong. With his relationship with his distant father in shreds and betrayed by his best mate, unexpected hope comes from Leo’s girlfriend Kasia.
Starring Charley Palmer Rothwell (Dunkirk, Legend), Thomas Turgoose (This Is England, Eden Lake), Morgane Polanski (Vikings, The Ghost) and Tom Fisher (The King, The Young Victoria). Directed by Rene van Pannevis (Jacked).
Looted will open in UK and Irish cinemas on Friday 6th November.
