Urban Hymn

British Black Panther star Letitia Wright gave a breakout performance in this quietly affecting drama, set against the backdrop of the 2011 London riots. She is matched by fellow Brit Shirley Henderson whose choir group provides a much-needed outlet. An emotional story that hits plenty of high notes.





Social worker Kate (Shirley Henderson) begins a new job at a home for wayward children, where she is assigned to work with Jamie (Letitia Wright), a teenager hardened by her difficult upbringing. When Kate discovers Jamie’s talent for singing, they overcome their differences to find a connection.
