  • 'My Day' (2019) - Ibrahim Miiro.

    This downbeat, rewardingly gritty, frequently flawed, but not uninteresting low budget independent UK drama concerns the increasingly toxic travails of pretty young homeless girl Ally (Hannah Laresa Smith) and her brutal mistreatment at the vile, grasping hands of unscrupulous drug dealers. After a bold, terrifically energized first act, colourfully replete with especially fine acting by the film's spirited cast, My Day's frequently clumsy narrative often feels contrived, the relationship to kindly octogenarian do-gooder Frank (Mike Kinsey), while undeniably sweet, is poorly realised, but, to be fair, sparky Hannah Laresa Smith's earnest, brightly engaging performance remains wholly sympathetic throughout, as she's definitely one to watch out for in future! While 'My Day' undeniably has a warm, socially conscious heart, and the sordid milieu of inner city skulduggery is appreciably raw, the film's shallow text feels a trifle inauthentic, but this still remains an auspicious start for talented filmmaker Miiro and his delightful young muse Hannah!
