While coping with a particularly brutal breakup, Dom finds himself wailing in the gender-neutral toilets of a friend’s art show. On the other side of the door, asking if he is okay, is Yas, a free-spirited, wannabe costume designer. Their chance meeting is about to lead them into an unpredictable, shenanigan-packed adventure through south London. Raine Allen-Miller’s energetic and playful film pops with visual flair, a rapturous score by musician Kwes and two ridiculously charismatic central performances by David Jonsson and Vivian Oparah. With affectionate nods to big screen romances and beautifully observed moments, Rye Lane is a colourful portrait of our capital. In fact, London has rarely looked so good and falling in love has never been so much fun.
