UK Film: My Brother The Devil (Trailer)

"A story about identity, brotherhood and the courage it takes to live life on your own terms in an uncompromising world.
Mo is a young boy growing up in a traditional Egyptian household, but beyond the front door of the family's modest London flat is a completely different world -- the streets of Hackney. The impressionable Mo idolizes his handsome older brother Rashid and wants to follow is his footsteps. However, Rashid, a charismatic and shrewd member of a local gang, wants a different life for his little brother and deals drugs hoping to put Mo through college. One eventful summer, Rashid's sexual awakening forces Mo to confront his own fears and phobias and threatens to tear the brothers apart."

When I first heard about this film, the title made me raise an eyebrow. However now that I have better understanding of the storyline, I'm more interested in seeing how the talent within the cast (which includes Arnold Oceng and Letitia Wright) are going to pull it together. Already having won the 'Dramatic Award 2012' at the Sundance Film Festival, this one is one to look out for and support when released later in the year.
