Sixteen-year-old Jumah is an adopted former child soldier from the Congo, struggling to control his demons on a London council estate. As a school pal remarks, hes seen some things and done some things. However, can he keep his cool after hes harassed by the perpetrators of a local stabbing? Rob Browns haunting feature debut benefits from committed performances (by lead Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, and screen mum Rachael Stirling in particular), and a script favouring character over gunplay. Perhaps the storys a little rote, but theres integrity here. Director: Rob Brown Starring: Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, Rachael Stirling, Rosie Day Theatrical release: 25 March 2015 Ali Catterall
