Us and Them

Three rough and tumble British lads, intent on making a grand and brutish statement on economic inequality in the UK, use one upper crust family as their sacrificial lamb.

"A remarkable acting turn by Jack Roth (who) owns the camera with gritty style ... an actor to watch." – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

"Dark, gritty, comical, and poignant. Cinematography was fantastic…a very entertaining film." – Mark Krawczyk, We Live Film
