The Drifters (15)

Virtual Cinema
Wednesday 17th February 2021 - Monday 5th April 2021

Ben Bond, UK, 2019, 91m, n/c – 15+ advisory, drama / romance

Fanny, a Parisienne waitress, and Koffee, an African immigrant, meet cute at a London English
class. Both are running from something – she from a dead-end existence, he from something far
more life-threatening. Fleeing London after Koffee has botched a job for his boss, they fetch up in
Teignmouth, where a brief respite allows them to get to know each other, enjoy life and ponder
where they want to get to, before reality catches up. Breezily shot in vibrant colours and in a style
joyfully recalling the French Nouvelle Vague, this entertaining film makes Teignmouth look like the
French Riviera and is imbued with a free-wheeling ambience that is the perfect antidote for the
pandemic blues.

“The Drifters finds its voice with a perfectly judged narrative, gently teasing out the characters’
back story. The Devon coast has never looked finer, and provides the perfect landscape for a tale
told with disarming honesty.” Brian Penn, UK Film Review
