Synopsis

Dennis, or ‘D’ as his neighbors call him in Kingston, Jamaica, helps his brother Jerry organise block parties to encourage peace between two rival gangs. When his brother is fatally shot at one of the events, D is taken in by King Fox, the leader of one of the gangs who sends him to London to deliver a package to a local drug dealer called Rico. On his arrival, he is reunited with his wife Yvonne and their young daughter who left the island to start a new life, but it's not long before they become entangled in a drug war when D becomes Rico’s target. The directorial debut of Idris Elba, ‘Yardie’ is an adaptation of the British crime novel of the same name, exploring issues around grief, multiculturalism and immigration.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
