City of Tiny Lights – watch the trailer for this film where we are introduced to Tommy. Riz Ahmed enjoys his ‘dark’ role and rarely sees light of day. In British cinemas April 7
This is how it goes…
Meet Tommy Akhtar (Riz Ahmed), cricket fan, devoted son to an ailing father and deadbeat private eye. He’s got an office above a cab firm, a taste for cigarettes and bourbon, and a finely tuned moral compass that he keeps hidden behind a sharp cynicism. When Tommy walks into his office one morning to find a high-class prostitute seeking his help, he’s launched into a story that plays as an utterly original modern noir.
Set in West London, City of Tiny Lights is co-written by author Patrick Neate, and based on his novel of the same name. It is a unique portrait of contemporary London as a teeming multicultural metropolis where nothing is as it seems.
Directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point, Dredd). Riz Ahmed (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Night Of) stars alongside Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Yerma) as Shelley, Tommy’s long-lost love. The ensemble cast includes Cush Jumbo (Joesphine and I, The Inbetweeners) and Roshan Seth (Indian Summers, My Beautiful Laundrette). Rebecca O’Brien (I, Daniel Blake) produces.
It is a cool racy movie that takes you on a journey you didn’t know existed in the big Capital.
Variety says: On paper this downbeat thriller is a surefire winner. Riz Ahmed is one of the best and fastest-rising of the current crop of young British actors.
