Movie Info

In July 2005, black teenager Anthony Walker was murdered by two white men in an unprovoked racist attack in a Liverpool park. He was just 18 years old. This film tells the story of how this talented young man's life might have turned out. Written by Bafta-winning screenwriter Jimmy McGovern, Anthony's imagined life is told in reverse chronology as we see him realise his dreams and enjoy the life he had a right to live, before fate -- and hate -- take it all away.

Heartbreaking, thought-provoking, and never a misery-fest. Don't miss this one.

Toheeb Jimoh has to make this paragon feel like a regular lad, and pulls it off brilliantly.

August 3, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The brilliance of McGovern's piece was in the structure: an alternative universe imagining the life that Anthony could have lived, told in reverse chronology.

August 3, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It was powerful stuff and unlike anything I've seen before.

August 3, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The fulfilled potential played out on screen is a powerful message of what was lost. But it is also just a single iteration of the infinite possibilities which awaited Anthony.

August 3, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Every scene of happiness hollows out your heart a little more - it is an incredibly evocative replication of the grief bereavement brings.
