One of the more high-profile films to screen at the 2013 Sundance London festival, this US indie stars ‘Dreamgirls’ actress Jennifer Hudson and ‘Red Tails’ star Anthony Mackie and was directed by George Tillman Jr, the man behind moderate hits like ‘Men of Honor’ and ‘Notorious’. It’s the tale of two young boys in the Brooklyn projects who are left to fend for themselves one long, hot summer. But, despite Tillman’s mainstream profile, expect this to skew closer to the likes of ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ and Hirokazu Kore-eda’s similar ‘Nobody Knows’, rather than the broad appeal of, say, ‘Home Alone’.
