David Knight - 22nd Jan 2018

Jorja Smith plays a contract killer who faces a moral dilemma when she's hired to kill the man she loves, in Hector Dockrill's dark tale for our times.

Filmed in Kiev's historic October Palace - in 2013-2014 it was occupied by protestors in the Euromaidan conflict and served as a makeshift hospital - the setting helps to create a sense of Bond-style intrigue and danger, while the apparent amorality chimes with grim events chronicled in TV shows like McMafia.

And if you're a little uncertain of the fate of the innocent victim, Stormzy's cameo appearance at the end seems to answer that question. It's certainly not a case of romantic 'happy-ever-afters'.
