A Way Of Life

Written and directed by British filmmaker Amma Asante, this BAFTA-nominated drama features solid performances from British actors Gary Sheppeard, Nathan Jones and Dean Wong. With composition by British singer-songwriter David Gray, the film was co-produced by AWOL Films, Arts Council of Wales, ITV Cymru Wales, Tantrum Films and UK Film Council.





Single teen mom Leigh-Anne (Stephanie James) faces increasing pressure as both social services and her daughter's paternal grandmother (Brenda Blethyn) threaten to take her child away from her. Surrounded by crime and poverty, and fearing her neighbour (Oliver Haden) is also talking to social services, her destructive behaviour begins to increase in line with her paranoia.
