"Woolwich Boys" marks the feature film debut of Commonwealth Film Award Winner, Anthony Abuah.
Woolwich Boys is a feature film that focuses on the lives of 4 Nigerian friends, who embark on a life of '419' fraud crime between 2003/04. Based on true events, the story is focused on the metoric rise of 'Wale', a teenager who has recently arrived in Britain from Nigeria. When he is unable to complete his studies, he is enticed into a life of crime.
The cast includes a slew of unknown talents including current Miss Nigeria UK (Chichi Okafor), comedian Lateef Lovejoy and leading man Stanley Chinoso, who is described as "a revelation" (Critic, Neil White).
Woolwich Boys made its film festival debut this past February at the Stoke-Your-Fires Film Festival, opening to rave reviews.
With a release date slated for Autumn 2012, Woolwich Boys is sure to provide an insight into a world unseen on the big screen.
