Hull Film Festival: The Last Tree

Tue 2nd Jul 2019 @ 8:30 pm

£6 – £8

Yorkshire Premiere

Shola Amoo | 2019 | UK | 100 mins | No cert (TBC) Entry 18+ | English language | Drama

Synopsis

Femi, a British boy of Nigerian heritage, enjoys a happy childhood in Lincolnshire, where he’s raised by doting foster mother Mary and surrounded by a tight-knit group of friends – until his real mum reclaims him and deposits him into a very different life in her small inner-London flat. With little emotional bond to his mother and no remembrance of their cultural heritage, Femi struggles to adapt. As he gets used to his new environment, Femi hardens himself, pulling away from the wishes of both of his ‘mothers’ and forging ahead in a brazen attempt to build his own identity.

Writer/director Shola Amoo pairs a lived-in honesty with a fresh, exciting stylistic panache in this depiction of the crooked –and at times perilous – path to manhood. The lyrical texture of Amoo’s filmmaking both visually and aurally expresses the changes in Femi’s internal state, while this unflinchingly unsentimental coming-of-age film consistently defies our expectations of what will happen next.

Cast

Nicholas Pinnock, Denise Black, Gbemisola Ikumelo

Reviews
