Urban and the Shed Crew (original title)
1h 38m | Drama | Release date: November 7, 2015 (United Kingdom)

Storyline:

Based on Bernard Hare’s Orwell-nominated memoir Urban and The Shed Crew. 11-year-old Urban’s been running away from care since he was 5 (6 care homes and 8 foster homes in 6 years); he’s Britain’s most runaway child…When he can’t find his mum, he sleeps rough on the streets, or in a shed with other runaways, The Shed Crew’. He’s never known a dad, just his mentally-ill addict mum Greta. So when she meets Chop, the first decent bloke they’ve ever known, Urban feels hope for the first time. For Chop, the once idealistic ex-social worker, it’s a chance of redemption. He takes in the broken family, helps Greta, teaches Urban and his brother Frank lessons in life. But the family’s new-found happiness is all too fleeting as Greta’s propensity to self-destruct proves too strong…leaving Urban to cope with the fallout the only way he knows.

User review:

An amazing film that is both heart breaking and thought provoking. It’s lead actor, the wonderful Fraser Kelly (one to watch in the future) plays Urban – the street-wise young lad trying to make his way in a world of neglect, homelessness and addiction. From the opening scene of him running through the streets – alone and barefoot, to the final, emotional scene where we see how his life has changed, he takes us on a journey with his friend, disillusioned ex- social worker Chop (played perfectly by Richard Armitage) who gives him the hope of light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

The relationship between Urban and Chop (and the rest of Urban’s equally broken but resilient crew) are at the heart of the film. All the actors are amazing and perfectly cast in their roles especially Anna Friel who plays Urban’s neglectful, cheating and addicted mum. She has momentarily good intentions but not the will power to see them through. We get to see why she is in the situation that she has found herself trapped in and this makes her relationship with Urban all the more poignant.

This film is well worth watching. It will make you question why people are still living like this in this day and age and how many children are having to live like Urban and his crew?

This film will stay with you long after you leave the cinema due to its very important message and wonderful acting. I loved it!
