FILM – Kierston Wareing looks stunning in Pia Michi at the premiere of Idris Elba’s A Hundred Streets
Style icon and BAFTA nominee Kierston Wareing stuns at the premiere of her latest film Idris Elba’s A Hundred Streets.
BAFTA nominated actress Kierston Wareing goes back to her roots in the gritty feature A Hundred Streets alongside Idris Elba, Gemma Arterton, Charlie Creed-Miles, Franz Drameh, Tom Cullen and Ken Stott. Jim O’Hanlon directs the multi-stranded drama, which tells 4 stories of a group of people who live within one square mile of each other in London.
A layered and gripping drama, it takes a fresh look at the vibrant and compelling life of a group of individuals in contemporary London – destination capital of the world. A Hundred Streets intersect the film’s setting. Chelsea is just down the road from high-rise estates, riverside opulence contrasts with the day-to-day grind. It’s in these streets that the characters face defining moments, major choices and fundamental change in their separate lives, as they negotiate their paths through life, paths that often interweave through our hundred streets.
Wareing known for her work in Top Boy, Luther and Fish Tank, previously worked with Idris in season two of Luther and was named one of the Stars of Tomorrow by Screen International, alongside Gemma Arterton. In 2007 this talented actress was nominated for a BAFTA alongside Dame Judi Dench and Dame Eileen Atkins for her work in Ken Loach’s It’s a Free World. In Fish Tank, directed by Oscar nominated director Andrea Arnold, Kierston starred alongside Michael Fassbender and in other productions with the award winning actors Tom Hardy and Chiwetel Ejiofor. In A Hundred Streets, Wareing plays Kathy, in a never seen before role, as an East London nurse.
The filmmakers describe the project as a gritty, contemporary and poignant multi-layered drama, with the underlying message being one of hope, and that by working as a community, things can only get better. A Hundred Streets is written by Leon F. Butler and produced by Idris Elba.
A Hundred Streets is released into UK cinemas on November 11t and will released in the US in January 2016.
