A Hoxton-set drugs drama about a no-hoper and his group of coke-snorting "geezer" pals, who insist on saying "bruv" to each other, is the sort of film which, on paper, you'd usually jump several traffic lights to avoid.

However, Lee Sales's debut feature is impressively authentic, with believable characters and a zesty script. It's the uncomplicated story of a rather inept drug dealer, George (George Russo), his upmarket girlfriend, Sophie (Ophelia Lovibond), and the vulgar layabouts that George hangs around with. Foolish George uses the money Sophie has saved for their romantic holiday together to fund a coke deal. Of course, the deal goes south. A promising debut.
