Urban Hymn will be hitting the big screen here in the UK on 7th October.
Urban Hymn has already screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Glasgow International Film Festival and it is great that it has picked up a distributor and will be heading our way in the autumn.
The movie marks the return of Michael Caton-Jones to the director's chair for his first feature film since Basic Instinct 2 back in 2006. He has brought us movies such as Memphis Belle and The Jackal during his career.
The director has brought together a fantastic cast as Shirley Henderson, Ian Hart, Steven Mackintosh and Shaun Parkes are all set to star.
The movie will also see Letitia Wright take on the central role of Jamie Harrison, in what will be the biggest film role of her career to date.
Set against the backdrop of the 2011 British summer riots, Urban Hymn is a redemptive coming-of-age story set in South-West London and follows the wayward teen, Jamie (Wright).
Encouraged by inspiring and unconventional care worker Kate (Henderson) to use singing as a release from her troubled life, Jamie's loyalties soon become torn between Kate and her possessive and volatile best friend, Leanne (Laughland).
Urban Hymn is released 7th October by Bulldog Film Distribution.
