About the Show
Set in the East End of London, The Take is a gripping family drama set in the criminal underworld spanning 10 years from the height of Thatcherism to the birth of New Labour.
Screenwriter Neil Biswas (Bradford Riots, Second Generation, In a Land of Plenty) adapts Martina Cole’s novel.
Freddie Jackson is just out of prison. He’s done his time, made the right connections and now he’s ready to use them. His wife Jackie dreams of having her husband home but she’s forgotten the rows and the girls Freddie can’t leave alone. His younger cousin, Jimmy, dreams of making a name for himself on Freddie’s coattails.
At first Freddie gets everything he ever wanted and Jimmy is taken along for the ride: a growing crime empire that gives them all the respect and money they’ve hungered for. But behind it all sits Ozzy - the legendary criminal godfather who manipulates Freddie and Jimmy’s fates from behind the bars of his prison cell.
Bitter, resentful and increasingly unstable, Jackie sees her life crumble while her little sister Maggie’s star rises. In love with Freddie’s cousin Jimmy, Maggie is determined not to end up like her sister.
Freddie and Jackie watch Jimmy and Maggie achieve all the dreams that they themselves failed to realise: love, family, stability and respect.
Jealous resentment and an inability to control himself force Freddie to put both the business and family at risk. Torn between being loyal to a cousin he loves and being true to his own destiny, Jimmy is forced to decide between protecting Freddie or the life he has built with Maggie.
This is a powerful human drama about love, power, violence and betrayal.
Newsflash from Berlin - New Addition to the Festival Catalogue 2012; Neil Thompson & David Kew’s TWENTY8K
New thriller ‘Twenty8K’ expected to be released this year, is a late inclusion to the Berlin Film Festival currently running where we have seen a few of the other films we have have been involved in namely ‘My Brother the Devil’ and ‘Comes a Bright Day’ The eight week shoot around East London which including filming at Three Mills Studios where we just finished filming ‘The Magnificent Eleven’ written by Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) with Robert Vaughan. ‘Twenty8K’ is directed by David Kew and Neil Thompson (Clubbed) and written by Jimmy Dowdall and Paul Abbott (Shameless), ‘Twenty8K’ features a strong female lead seldom shown in cinema and tells the story of British born but Paris based fashion executive Diva (Parminder Nagra – Bend it Like Beckham, ER) who returns to London after her brother has been arrested for a fatal gang shooting but after she returns home to clear her brother’s name she soon discovers a much deeper conspiracy.
Sporting an array of emerging British talent who we have worked with like Nichola Burley (Payback Season), Michael Socha (Bonded by Blood) and Kierston Wareing (Bonded by Blood) the film follows Diva as she sets out on a dangerous quest to find the truth. It’s early days for Twenty8K so there’s no telling how it will fare with audiences upon its release but nevertheless the hard work and ambitions of anyone making a low budget film should never be ignored. People like this are an inspiration and with it now been shown in Berlin its a chance I couldn’t miss to share. Below you can view the producers views on the meagre budget, the preproduction phase, process of the filming. the use of real location, how piracy is killing the British film industry which alone is worth the watch but with,some interviews with Parminder and the rest of the cast it has a overall positive outlook for things to come in the future.
I hope you enjoy it and if you do like and share.
