Details

Acclaimed British director Shane Meadows' (Dead Man's Shoes, This is England) assured debut feature Small Time is a tale of petty crime in the suburbs of Nottingham, starring Meadows himself as Jumbo, leader of a band of small-time crooks.

Featuring energetic hand-held camera work, brilliant comic dialogue and a host of film references, Small Time clearly reveals Meadows' flair for larger-then-life characters and ability to extract accomplished, semi-improvised performances from talented non-professionals.

Also included is Where's the Money Ronnie!, Shane Meadows' short film homage to Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon, which offers four different views of a robbery.

"A gritty-witty collision of Tarantino, Loach and Leigh"
