Riz Ahmed And Billie Piper In Trailer For City Of Tiny Lights

Meet Tommy Akhtar (Riz Ahmed), cricket fan, devoted son to an ailing father and deadbeat private eye. He's got an office above a cab firm, a taste for cigarettes and bourbon, and a finely tuned moral compass that he keeps hidden behind a sharp cynicism. When Tommy walks into his office one morning to find high-class prostitute Melody seeking his help, he's launched into a story that plays as an utterly original modern noir.

Directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point, Dredd), Riz Ahmed (Rogue One, Nightcrawler, The Night Of) stars alongside Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, Doctor Who) as Shelley, Tommy's long-lost love. The ensemble cast includes Cush Jumbo (Josephine and I, The Inbetweeners) and Roshan Seth (Indian Summers, My Beautiful Laundrette). Rebecca O'Brien (I, Daniel Blake) produces.

Set in West London, City Of Tiny Lights is co-written by author Patrick Neate, and based on his novel of the same name.

Out in the UK on April 7th….
