iLL Manors is the highly anticipated directorial debut by pioneering British music artist Ben Drew (aka Plan B). A unique crime thriller set on the unforgiving streets of London, iLL Manors follows sic disparate lives, all struggling to survive the circles of violence that engulf them. We meet Kirby, an ex-dealer, who ha just been released from prison; Ed, a mindless thug who will stop at nothing to find his missing phone; troubled Michelle who is just looking for her next hit and young Jake who finds himself drawn to the local gang. Chris is hell-bent on revenge and Katya is desperately trying to escape this dangerous foreign land. Not forgetting Aaron, our protagonist, who is just trying to do the right thing. Narratively linked though original music from Plan B, the film is a visually stunning and emotionally impactful experience, laced with street-wise humour. Ground-breaking in its approach, iLL Manors proves to be one the must-see films of 2012.
