Curious about the style of this based on the trailer... looks like a combo documentary, stage and feature narrative used to tell the story of 24 hours in the life of a Black British woman on the day her younger brother is killed in a random act of violence.

Titled Random, the film is scheduled to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. Directed by Debbie Tucker Green, the film stars Nadine Marshall, Daniel Kaluuya (mentioned on this site last year as one of the UK's young black stars of tomorrow), Jay Byrd, and Louis Mahoney.

TIFF calls it a "kaleidoscopic, monologue-driven portrait."

I'd like to see more.

Here's the trailer:

    Interesting. Hoping this gets a wider release once out of the festival loop.
