Tomo (Thomas Turgoose) has left his depressed English town and his deadbeat dad to try and make it in London.

Since Marek's dad notices little of what is going on around him, Tomo quietly moves in, and the boys deepen their bond. But when they both fall for the same girl, a local barmaid named Maria (Elisa Lasowski), and Marek's dad gets wise to his new tenant, the friendship is tested.

  • Somers Town, is a trifle: A short black-and-white lark with sharp edges and a soft center. It has its raptures, though, and then some. A disarmingly slight tale of adolescent friendship, Somers Town is one of those rare movies that seems to discover itself as you watch it. show more
