urban_hymnDescribed as one of the most beautiful, heartbreaking and tender films of 2015, Urban Hymn is available on DVD and Digital HD NOW from Bulldog Film Distribution.

TBB have luckily scored 5 DVD copies to give away.

Set against the backdrop of the 2011 British summer riots, Michael Caton–Jones’, Urban Hymn is a redemptive coming-of-age story set in South-West London and follows wayward teen, Jamie (Letitia Wright). Encouraged by inspiring and unconventional care worker Kate (Shirley Henderson) to use singing as a release from her troubled life, Jamie’s loyalties soon become torn between Kate and her possessive and volatile best friend, Leanne (Isabella Laughland).

Michael Caton-Jones (Memphis Belle, The Jackal), makes a welcome return with the heart-warming Urban Hymn which won Best Film in the Generator +18 category at the Giffoni Film Festival and screened at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and the 2016 Glasgow International Film Festival.

Shirley Henderson (Southcliffe, Filth, Trainspotting) gives an incredibly moving performance as care worker Kate Linton alongside ‘Screen International Star of Tomorrow’  & BAFTA 2015 Rising Star, Letitia Wright (Top Boy, My Brother The Devil) and Isabella Laughland (Harry Potter, Now Is Good) who was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards in 2010.

Michael Caton-Jones directs from an original screenplay by Nick Moorcroft (St Trinian’s 1&2, Burke & Hare). The supporting cast includes Ian Hart (Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone, Finding Neverland), Steven MacKintosh (Luther, Underworld: Evolution), Shaun Parkes (Notes on a Scandal, Human Traffic) and musician and activist, Billy Bragg.
