Dir. Idris Elba • 2018 • UK • Crime/Drama • 100 mins • Cert 15
Based on the novel by Victor Headley, and set in '70s Jamaica and '80s London, Yardie tells the story of a drug deal, a gang rivalry, and Dennis Cambell, a young man from a Hackney estate who rises through the criminal underworld to become its kingpin.
Idris Elba’s directorial debut is a heart-racing and timely story about retribution, and making the choice between a life of crime or following ‘the righteous path’.
