New Cherry Tree Lane Trailer
Hoodies are out to get you!

Paul Andrew Williams impressed pretty much everyone with his feature debut, London To Brighton, followed that up with The Cottage and is now set to terrify the middle classes again with Cherry Tree Lane - and the film's new trailer is (exclusively) below.

If you're thinking that name sounds familiar, the answer is yes, that's where Mary Poppins worked. But this is a very different suburban drama: an average middle aged couple, Mike (Tom Butcher) and Christine (Rachael Blake), are settling down for a quiet night in when a group of young locals arrive looking for their son, Sebastian, and decide to stay and wait until he comes home. It's probably fair to say that the newcomers aren't going to be content with a glass of vino and a few canapes while they're waiting. It's also probably fair to say that this film won't have a magical nanny appearing to save the day.

Cherry Tree Lane is out on September 3, and on DVD 10 days later. Yes, the world moves that fast now, people.

Hoodies? Oh, just feckless Hoodies...
Like I don't get enough grief from these arseholes in real life, they have to make movies about them too? These numb-brained fuckwits don't deserve the time of day. Oh,and Barneyross1? I don't think Tookey would even bother with 1 star, a turkey is more his style... read his review of Kick-Ass... though he has surprised me before. More

Yeah Empire has indeed posted their review already on the site and have given it four stars.. why is it only on the cinema for 3 days? something tells me this won't do very well More

Funny Games with hoodies?
I thought London to Brighton lacked a lot of substance and fell into reportage. People doing horrible things but with no explanation as to why. Very one dimensional. I'll be surprised if this is any better. More

I'll probably miss the cinema release, would be nice to see one of his films on a bigger screen than I own. More

Attended a screening of this several months ago when the team were looking for a distributor. It's extremely well made but is a hard, dark watch.... More
