My Brother the Devil is set to hit theaters this month, and as you already see from our title – we’re here to give you a better look at this urban drama. The first thing you should know about Sally El Hosaini‘s movie is that it’s one of the most acclaimed and awarded films of 2012/2013, which tells the story of two sons of Egyptian immigrants coming of age in East London. More details – in the rest of this report…
Written and directed by El Hosaini, the movie tells the story of two brothers tested loyalty as their paths collide amidst a violent world of drugs and gangs. In other words – they must face their prejudices head on if they are to survive the perils of being young, British Arabs on the streets of gangland London.
A young boy poses as a street-hardened gangster in order to impress his older brother, putting them both on a treacherous path that could destroy their family. Mo is an isolated 14-year-old boy who longs to be accepted by his peers. His older brother Rashid runs with a local gang and earns enough money to support their family. In Mo’s eyes, there’s nobody cooler than “Rash,” and in a desperate bid to prove his manhood, the sensitive younger sibling accepts a dangerous job. Unfortunately, his actions will have unforeseen consequences that could ruin both brothers’ lives.
Starring Fady Elsayed as Mo, James Floyd as Rashid, Said Taghmaoui and Aymen Hamdouchi, My Brother the Devil is set to open on March 22nd, 2013.
