The Bike Thief Trailer

"Whatever you have to do… Do it for your family." Signature in the UK has released an official trailer for a British indie drama titled The Bike Thief, marking the feature debut of filmmaker Matt Chambers, who worked for years as a production assistant before finally directing this film. The Bike Thief is a "gritty British drama-thriller" that basically plays like a contemporary update on the classic Italian film Bicycle Thieves. The Rider is an ordinary, hard-working man. Everything he does is done to protect and support his family. He works as a delivery driver for a local Pizza restaurant, which happens to be owned & run by his landlord. When the Rider's moped is stolen, his world turns upside down and a race against time starts to recover the source of his livelihood. Starring Alec Secareanu (from God's Own Country) and Anamaria Marinca (from 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days). I dig the look of this, two stellar actors, I really need to see this one.

Here's the new official UK trailer (+ poster) for Matt Chambers' The Bike Thief, direct from YouTube:
