Bringing the vibrant communities of ’70s Kingston and ’80s Hackney to thrilling cinematic life...

… Idris Elba’s masterful directorial debut Yardie arrives on Digital Download on 24th December and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on Boxing Day, 25th December. Pre-order now: https://scnl.co/YardieHE

D (Aml Ameen, Kidulthood), is growing up in 70’s Kingston when his older brother, Jerry Dread, is murdered before his eyes. Distraught, D is taken under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer: King Fox. When Fox dispatches him to Hackney, D finds himself in direct conflict with vicious London gangster Rico (Stephen Graham, This Is England) and is forced to choose between “the righteous path” and retribution for his brother’s death.

With a stunning soundtrack and from the producers of ’71 and This is England, Yardie is the fresh, compelling and remarkable directorial debut from Idris Elba.
