Daniel Wolfe's long-awaited first feature Catch Me Daddy finally reaches UK cinemas at the end of February, and this gripping new trailer for the movie suggests that the qualities that made him Britain's best music video director is about to put him in the top rank of British film directors.

Fans of Daniel's music videos for Plan B, Chase & Status, The Shoes and most recently, Paolo Nutini, look set to be in for a treat with what appears to be a full translation of his characteristically intense, highly cinematic style to longform drama. 

Catch Me Daddy, co-written and co-directed by Daniel and his brother and longtime collaborator Matthew Wolfe - and photographed by Robbie Ryan – is a riveting, heart-pumping thriller, shot through with social realism. When Asian girl Laila runs away with her white boyfriend to live on the Yorkshire Moors, her brother and a group of thugs hired by her father turn up in town she is forced to flee for her life. 

Following its premiere at Cannes last year, the movie has already been widely acclaimed and Sameena Jabeen Ahmed, who plays Laila, won best newcomer at the 2014 London Film Festival awards.

So watch this, then put it in the diary: Catch Me Daddy comes out in UK cinemas on Friday February 27th.
