SOMERS TOWN

SOMERS TOWN

Shot in stunnig black and white on location in the area of North London that the film takes is name from, Somers Town is Meadow‘s first film to be set outside the Midlands. Turgoose plays Tomo, a troubled young lad who‘s run away from London. There he meets Marek, a shy Polish teenager who shares a small flat with his labourer father in a rundown area. When Marek agrees to let Tomo stay with them, unbeknownst to his father, the pair form a strong bond as they work odd jobs for an eccentric neighbour, compete for the attention of Maria, a beautiful French waitress and try to avoid discovery by Marek’s father.
