Official UK Trailer for 'Farming' Directed by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
"You ain't like them… You're better." Lionsgate UK has unveiled an official UK trailer for the indie drama Farming, which is the feature directorial debut of English actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. You will recognize Adewale as Killer Croc from Suicide Squad, or Algrim from Thor, or Heavy Duty from G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, or Mr. Eko from "Lost" - now he's telling his own true story. Based on Adewale's childhood, Farming is about a young Nigerian boy who "farmed out" by his parents to a white British family in hopes of a better future. Instead, he becomes the feared leader of a white skinhead gang in 1980's England. The cast includes Damson Idris, Kate Beckinsale, John Dagleish, Jaime Winstone, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Genevieve Nnaji, as well as Adewale. Damn - this looks very powerful and brutally honest. Worth a watch.
