Grow Your Own - Thames Radical Cinema

Political refugees are given allotments as part of a scheme to help them fit into the local community. Reaction is mixed amongst the allotment holders. Mobile phone company employees Carla, a go-getting bitch, and her dim young assistant, Mike, arrive at the allotments, offering five grand for one of the plots to make way for a phone mast. Attention turns to the plot given to Kung Sang, a traumatised Oriental whose young children tend to communicate on his behalf. A subtle comedy carrying a real message.

Dir: Richard Laxton (2007) rating 15
