My Brother the Devil (2013) Trailer
This stylish and energetic feature debut from Sally El Hosaini, a Screen International 'UK Star of Tomorrow', is set on the streets of Hackney. Teenage Mo idolises his older brother, Rashid, but his adulation is misplaced. The handsome Rashid is a gang member and drug dealer, but he loves his little bro' and is determined that the guileless Mo should stay on the straight and narrow. Their Egyptian migrant family has little money to spare, so Rashid helps out, sneaking a few extra bank notes into his mother's purse. One summer, as gang violence heats up, Mo witnesses an incident that rips into the brotherly bond and sets him on a dangerous path. The two siblings are convincingly and touchingly portrayed by newcomer Fady Elsayed as Mo and up-and-coming UK actor James Floyd as his older brother Rashid in this masterful urban drama.
