Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
Kate is a young woman subscribed to bad decisions. Working as an elf in a year round Christmas store is not good for the wannabe singer. However, she meets Tom there. Her life takes a new turn. For Kate, it seems too good to be true.
Blue Story is a tragic tale of a friendship between Timmy and Marco, two young boys from opposing postcodes. Timmy, a shy, smart, naive and timid young boy from Deptford, goes to school in Peckham where he strikes up a friendship with Marco, a charismatic, streetwise kid from the local area. Although from warring postcodes, the two quickly form a firm friendship until it is tested and they wind up on rival sides of a street war. Blue Story depicts elements of Rapman's own personal experiences and aspects of his childhood.Written by
As a young adult, who went into the movie expecting a real and authentic depiction of the struggle of the working class english youth and gang culture, I can't help but feel extremely unimpressed. The budget may have played a part in this (when casting inconsistent actors), or the script was weak(which left the actors with little to work with). But either way a 1.5 million budget should've been utilised in a better way. For a person who grew up in a similar environment conveyed in the movie but avoided it and worked hard to keep his head on straight, I'm slightly vexed by how knuckle-headed and stupid they've portrayed not only the community, but the criminals themselves. Ridiculous, over-glamourised, american-influenced scenes like firing guns for absolutely no reason midday is the reason so many youths think its okay now to run around with machetes to settle their disputes without consequences. Rapman is a very good musical artist, but I wasn't impressed with this project of his.
