Review
So Solid Crew's Asher D plays Ricky, just released from a young offender's institution and returning home to Hackney. Though promising himself he'll go straight, Ricky hasn't bargained on his old friends and affiliations, nor indeed considered the ever growing reliance on crime within his neighbourhood. Before long he has become ensnared in an escalating cycle of violence from which there seems no escape. Ricky's adoring young brother, on the other hand, has so far avoided his idol's path, but how long can the 12 year old lad resist? Bullet Boy is a surprisingly powerful and effective tale, well acted and directed with a sparse, uncompromising, unsentimental style by Saul Dibb.
