Somers Town (R2/UK BD) in January

Optimum Home Entertainment have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Somers Town on 12th January 2009. Tomo (Thomas Turgoose) has run away to London from a lonely, difficult life in the Midlands. Through a chance encounter he meets Marek (Piotr Jagiello), a Polish immigrant living with his father in Somers Town, central London. Unknown to his father, Marek begins hiding Tomo in his flat and the two boys go on little adventures, stealing clothes from a launderette and earning money from an eccentric neighbour, Graham (Perry Benson) while sharing a growing obsession for Maria, the French waitress at their local café. Adrift in an adult world, the two develop a mutual trust and acceptance through their unlikely friendship.

Somers Town is written by Paul Fraser and directed by Shane Meadows.
