SYNPOSIS: "Urban drama. Tomo has just turned 16, and as a result he is no longer under parental care. Eager to escape the Midlands and seek out a better life in London, he sets out for the big city and strikes up a friendship with Polish immigrant Marek while traversing the streets of Somers Town. Together they discover the woman of their dreams." (bbc.co.uk)
Short (at just over 70 minutes) but sweet, 'Somers Town' is probably worthy of a Buried Treasures feature, which is somewhat bizarre bearing in mind that this is basically an "advert for a train station" as Rotten Tomatoes astutely notes. 96% fresh reviews on the same site says it all really. And who isn't a sucker for a coming-of-age story anyway?
