Synopsis: Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton star in 100 STREETS, a layered and gripping drama, which takes a fresh look at the vibrant and compelling life of residents in contemporary London â€“ destination capital of the world. Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Jim Oâ€™Hanlon directs.
â€˜A Hundred Streetsâ€™ border and intersect the filmâ€™s setting in contemporary London. Chelsea squares back onto high-rise estates, riverside opulence contrasts the day to day grind. Itâ€™s in these streets that our cast of characters face major choices and change in their separate lives, as they negotiate their often inter-weaving existences.
The cast’s interconnecting stories paint a picture of a society where you are often loneliest within a crowd. As tension mounts, relationships are strained, loyalties are tested and violence erupts. Yet the underlying message of the film is one of hope; if you reach out to others, life is not a lonely struggle. With nods to both Crash and Amores Perros and inspired by London life, A Hundred Streets portrays modern city life in all its complexity and will resonate deeply with those who have lived it.
