  County Lines on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Teen torment
  This powerful, critically acclaimed and multi-award nominated drama about a mother and her son who is groomed into a lethal nationwide drugs network - a 'county line' - is inspired by director Henry Blake's first-hand experience as a youth worker on the frontline of child exploitation and drug trafficking in the UK.

Released in cinemas and digitally last December, it now comes to Blu-ray/DVD (Dual Format Edition) on 19 April 2021. An extensive range of extras includes a commentary by Henry Blake, his original 'proof of concept' short film County Lines, a Q&A with Henry Blake and actors Conrad Khan and Ashley Madekwe and more.

Fourteen-year-old Tyler (Conrad Khan) attends a pupil referral unit, where he is isolated and bullied. At home he must look after his younger sister Aliyah (Tabitha Milne-Price) while his mother, Toni (Ashley Madekwe), works nights. When the preoccupied and exhausted Toni loses her job, she thrusts the family into a desperate financial situation, leaving Tyler vulnerable to Simon (Harris Dickinson) a 'recruiter' who targets children to promote a drug-dealing enterprise out of the city.

Conrad Khan has been nominated for BAFTA's EE Rising Star Award and was previously nominated for Most Promising Newcomer at the BIFAs (British Independent Film Awards) and Young British/Irish Performer at the 41st London Critics' Circle Film Awards. Ashley Madekwe is nominated for BAFTA’s Best Supporting Actress and was previously nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the BIFAs. Harris Dickinson was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the BIFAs. County Lines was longlisted for BAFTA's Outstanding British Film. Director Henry Blake was nominated for Best Debut Director at the BIFAs and The Philip French Award for Breakthrough British/Irish Filmmaker at the 41st London Critics' Circle Film Awards. Watch the trailer at the link above.
