100 Streets tells the story of a formal UK soccer star whose life appears to be unraveling around him. Idris Elba is the star, and this trailer highlights what looks to devolve into a standoff situation on his balcony.
The synopsis is short and to the point: “Three people, three extraordinary stories. All lived out within a hundred London streets.” So there you have it. All of this satellite stories feel like they will somehow make their way back to Idris Elba’s Max storyline.
Along with Elba, 100 Streets stars Gemma Arterton as his wife, Tom Cullen, Franz Drameh, and a number of prominent British actors. This looks to be a primarily Brit release and an overseas draw, especially since it takes place in London and Elba’s Max is a former footballer. But it’s still probably worth seeking out wherever you can if you’re stateside.
100 Streets opened last Friday in the UK.
