My First Choice For Essential Hidden Gem that you should be checking out is Shane Meadows 'Dead Man's Shoes'
Dead Man’s Shoes is a genre defying film blending horror, the supernatural, comedy and social realism. A unique thriller, horror and revenge story.
Written and directed by Shane Meadows (This Is England, Room For Romeo Brass), the film’s writing credits are shared with the films lead and long-time collaborator Paddy Considine (A Room for Romeo Brass, My Summer of Love, In America), Dead Man’s Shoes explores the underbelly of contemporary rural Britain. The film is set in a Midlands’ village in a community where crime is unchecked and drugs, intimidation and power games are blandly accepted as the fabric of daily life.
Richard (Paddy Considine) has always protected his simple-minded younger brother Anthony (Toby Kebbell), but when Richard leaves the rural village where they have grown up to join the army, Anthony is taken in by Sonny (Gary Stretch), a vicious local drug dealer and his gang of thugs. Anthony becomes the gang’s pet and it amuses them to intimidate him and corrupt his innocence. Seven years later Richard returns for revenge.
Dead Man’s Shoes is the result of a five-year working relationship and long-term friendship between Shane Meadows and Paddy Considine. Working within the framework of a loose script, Dead Man’s Shoes developed with the actors’ talent using mainly non-professional actors and naturalistic situations. The film Introdued Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla) in his first feature film role, the cast is rounded out by Gary Stretch (A Good Night to Die, Dead Dogs Lie), Jo Hartley, Seamus O’Neill and Stuart Wolfenden.
