County Lines (2019)

  • Drama
  • 1h 30m

Inspired by true events, County Lines is a gripping coming-of-age thriller about Toni (Ashley Madekwe), a young single mum and Tyler (Conrad Khan, exceptional in his first leading role), her fourteen-year-old son who is groomed by Simon (Harris Dickinson), a ruthless neighbourhood criminal, for involvement in county lines, the lethal nationwide networks which exploit vulnerable children into trafficking drugs from urban areas to rural locations. Writer/director Henry Blake based the film on his own experience as an East London youth worker for eleven years, his first-hand knowledge from working with young people already taking part or at real risk of county lines exploitation has enabled him to create an authentic film that beautifully captures the harsh reality so many vulnerable young people are going through all over the UK.
