Pirates Rated 15

Pirates

Dir. Reggie Yates. UK, 2021. 1h 20m. Starring Elliot Edusah, Jordan Peters, Reda Elazouar, Kassius Nelson, Shiloh Coke, Youssef Kerkour.

In London, 1999, three pirate radio DJs trying to break into the UK garage scene are determined to see in the new millennium in style. The trio pile into a tiny Peugeot 205 and drive across London to try and get tickets for the best new year’s eve party of their lives. Reggie Yates's directorial debut is a joyful coming-of-age comedy brimming with vibrant performances and an evocative 90s soundtrack.

‘The closest things to a time machine with energy that explodes off the screen. A great slice of underrepresented British life that deserves to be seen big.’ ★★★★ Cheyenne Bunsie, Little White Lies

‘Fresh and funny at its best, Pirates bodes wells for Yates’s future career behind the camera’ Alex Ramon, BFI Sight and Sound Magazine
