2 We Are The Freaks (Edgar, 2013): Genesis Cinema, 6.30pm

This movie screens as part of the East End Film Festival, which runs from June 25 to July 10. Here are the details of the full programme.

This is the East End Film Festival introduction: A funny, moving and timely portrait of youthful hopelessness in the late Thatcher years. Justin Edgar’s witty drama sees Jack, who dreams of escaping his unfulfilling factory job, meet the talented, well to do Elinor. Heading off on a journey into the night, they pick up two eccentric friends and come into contact with rave culture, youthful rebellion and dangerous drug dealers. This is a punchy evocation of a dying counterculture, featuring a brilliant contemporary soundtrack and a roll call of recognisable faces from Skins and This Is England.
