Gone Too Far! 2013 12

88 mins United Kingdom Director. Destiny Ekaragha

Peckham teenager Yemi’s street-cred is dented when his long-lost Nigerian brother Iku arrives on the estate, flouting a thick Yoruba accent and even dodgier dress sense. Over the course of a single day, Yemi and Iku spend the day searching for okra, ingratiating Iku into London life and attempting to win the attentions of troublemaking temptress Armani.

Directed by Destiny Ekarargha (following her award-winning short Tight Jeans) and adapted from the Oliver-winning play by Bola Agbaje, Gone Too Far! Is an utterly authentic slice of South London life and a fantastic, freewheeling urban comedy.
