Told with brutal honesty, FARMING is an unflinching autobiographical portrait of a young man who must battle the odds and realise that, in a world of hate, his toughest battle will be learning to love himself. Writer/Director Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje delves into his own childhood for this tough and powerful drama. Enitan (Damson Idris) is left in the care of a British foster family by his Nigerian parents, who hope it will provide him with a better future. Instead, teenaged Enitan joins a skinhead gang, led by the brutal Levi (John Dagleish). Ingrid (Kate Beckinsale) stars as working class mother who fosters the young Enitan, while Gugu Mbatha-Raw is the teacher who struggles to help him avoid self-destruction. An enthralling and moving real-life story.
