Based on his own life story, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Farming is set to show us the extraordinary journey of a young fostered Nigerian boy who, struggling to find an identity, falls in with a skinhead gang in 1980’s England.
At six weeks old, Enitan (Zephan Amissah) is left in the care of a white working- class family in the dock-town of Tilbury, in Essex. His new surrogate mother, Ingrid (Kate Beckinsale), makes for a complex, but dubious foster parent. Unsure of his place in the world, and lacking a mother’s love, desperate to belong the teenage Enitan (Damson Idris) spirals into self-destruction, falling in with a local skinhead gang led by Levi (John Dagleish).
Farming also stars Damson Idris, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jaime Winstone, Ann Mitchell, Genevieve Nnaji, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Lee Ross and Zephan Amissah – Watch this amazing trailer now:
