All My Friends Hate Me – 29th August
The deliciously dark British comedy about social paranoia that recently screened in cinemas around the UK comes to BFI Player and BFI Blu-ray/DVD. The cast of up-and-coming young British talent, including Georgina Campbell, Joshua McGuire and Antonia Clarke is led by Tom Stourton who co-wrote the razor sharp script with producer Tom Palmer.
