Catch me daddy

UK 2014

In English & Urdu / English subtitles

107 min

Rating: 16


This debut from Daniel Wolfe-featuring tremendous cinematography from Robbie Ryan-is a tense thriller about a British Pakistani girl on the run. … It is a grimly nihilist drama based on the murderous phenomenon of the "honour killing" in British Pakistani communities. When Laila (Sameena Jabeen Ahmed) runs away to live with her boyfriend Aaron (Conor McCarron) on a caravan on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, her family refuse to tolerate it, and hire a posse of tough guys-both white and South Asian to get her back. … Catch Me Daddy is a fierce and boldly questioning drama about tribal politics and gender politics in contemporary Britain.
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
