Tambay first told us about the BBC's based-on-real-life drama, My Murder, which stars John Boyega, in March.

Boyega stars as murdered British teenager Shakilus Townsend, who, in 2008, was lured to his death by fellow teen Samantha Joseph (played by Simona Zivkovska), in what was labeled a "honeytrap murder", a twisted love-triangle gone terribly wrong.

I have to admit that it's a gritty piece of work, for a TV movie, at least.  And I would caution that though My Murder could be used as a learning tool to educate youths about the effects and consequences of violence, this is not a film for young kids.

And just to be on the safe side, I would be careful about watching it on your work computer, if you know what I mean.

The film was produced for, and aired on BBC3 back in March.  Not surprisingly, it's found its way onto YouTube.  And here it is . . .
