100 STREETS, a powerful ensemble drama, follows three contrasting and interwoven stories as they play out in one square mile of modern day London. A former rugby player, Max (Idris Elba), struggles to find a life off the field while fighting to save his marriage to former actress Emily (Gemma Arterton). Kingsley (Franz Drameh of CW's LEGENDS OF TOMORROW) is a small time drug dealer desperately seeking a way off the street. While completing his community service for a misdemeanor, Kinsley meets Terence (Ken Stott), a local thespian, who gives him the push he needs out of his dead end life and into a very different, creative world. George (Charlie Creed-Miles), a cab driver, and his wife Kathy (Kierston Wareing) dream of having kids, but a devastating road accident puts their hopes on hold even testing their otherwise strong marriage. Anybody can make a wrong turn, but it's the journey that allows us to find the right path.

Opening dialogue:
Life's pretty simple, you know. It's long periods of waiting broken up by brief
moments of change. That's it. That's all it is. You see, here's my theory. The moments of change? They're what give your life its shape, its form. But it only takes one of them to define you and that'll be the only thing you're remembered for, and you know it. In the instant it happens, you sense it, and the world is changed forever. You are forever changed.
===
We're all the same, you know. Without our passion, it's very hard for us to
find our place in the world.
===
I think what my better half is trying to say is that having played up a bit in his teens, he will be experienced enough to make sure that our kid knows
the pitfalls of hanging out with wrong 'uns.
-Yeah, and I've met plenty of wrong 'uns.

It's called the bush. It's... it's from the Australian film animal kingdom, but I kind of made up my own version, if that's all right, I mean... Yeah!
-Sounds perfect.
Okay. You know what the blocks are about? It's about dirty towers that have stood firm for two generations, and kids who'll die before they grow old. Grim towers and hopeless kids. And everybody knows their place in the scheme of things. Everything, everyone, sits in the order of the blocks.
Now, some survive 'cause they're strong, and there are those who are weak, but they survive 'cause they're being protected by the strong. See, because of the circles I move in, I thought I was one of the strong ones. But I'm not. I'm one of the weak ones. And the only reason I've survived
is 'cause I'm being protected by the strong.

The thing is, the less you have, the higher the price you have to pay.

You can try and leave this life, but this life will never leave you.

Thirty years in one square mile. Not so much as a stolen wallet. But in the greater scheme of things, doesn't really matter anyway.
"A thousand landmarks perish
"a hundred streets grow strange
"with all the dreams they Cherish
"they go the ways of change
"and whatso towers may tumble
"whatso Bridges fall
"whatso statues crumble
"of folk both great and small
"the oldest thing in London
"he changes not at all."
===
Oh, I've got something for you.
-Yeah? What's this?
A future, mom says.
===
If we get a kid, he's gonna play rugby. A game for gentleman, not hooligans.

Was this your pops? (Pointing at a headstone.)
-Oh, no, no. No, it was an old friend. You could call him my mentor.
There's nothing I'm doing right now that I'd even want to put on there, you know.
-Well, keep in mind that all our lives amount to is that little dash on your headstone between the date of your birth and your death. That stands for everything we ever were.
===
It ain't some big conspiracy, and it ain't no cover-up. Shit just happens, and you just gotta accept that. They say everyone's equal in the eyes of the law, but that don't mean the law treats everyone equally. Injustice, natural disasters, 9/11, the war on terror. Shit just happens, man.
===
You know I've always wanted a kid, and as much as it's hurt over the years... With me mum going on and all my friends having 'em. If I'm given a choice of getting my husband back, or getting a new baby, I'd pick you every time. I just want my rock back.

You know what my life's about right now? It's all about the blocks, dirty great towers that have stood firm for two generations, full of initiated kids who'll be dead before they grow old. Grim towers and hopeless kids.
===
"For the first 10 days they sailed on beautifully and found plenty to eat, as there was lots of fish. And they had only to take them out of the sea with a long spoon when the quangle wangle..."
===
A good deed brightens a dark world.
-So, would you like me to do anything else for you while I'm here?
Two curses of the modern world, sarcasm and the empty gesture. No, you're all done for today.
===
We pay all the taxes and we're the bloody pariahs. There are jobs. People
don't want to work. You know, if it wasn't for people like me, this country would be totally fxcked.

While I understand the British rule of "three stories per episode" of a TV series, it was just too much for this movie. I'll watch anything with Idis in it, but one viewing of this is plenty.

I only borrowed because of a particular actor the young Franz Drameh.
It's not something I would normally watch. I found it a bit boring and compelling.
The acting and sound were fine

I enjoyed this, I like those quirky British tales that somehow intersect.

Erred description that “a rich playboy” was nowhere in the plot, but it was a working class middle age couple trying hard to adopt a child. And none of the three stories within the hundred streets were "extraordinary." The self destructive former rugby star or the struggles of the young thug could be easily told many ways in any cities with better drama and credence. Nonetheless, some good lessons on urban humanity (see "Quotes") and likely an enjoyable film for die hard fans of Elba or/and Arteton. Turn on captions 'cause of those British urban slang.
