Chris is about to turn 18 and has some tough choices to make, should he go to art college or look after his sick adoptive mother? And will he tell his racist mum he has a West Indian girlfriend? And why are his family so crazy! Anfield Road is coming of age teen drama set in 80’s Liverpool against the Hillsborough disaster and Morrissey.’
Anfield Road is a funny and touching coming of age drama set in 80’s Liverpool. Our main character Chris is finding himself, figuring out how he fits into the world – or doesn’t. The blend of comedy and pathos is reminiscent of Midnight Cowboy, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest and particularly Billy Liar.
As with Billy Liar, Anfield Road’s main character Chris’ journey and his relationship with Rene forms the central arc of the film.
Anfield Road is created by award winning writer/director Chris Shepherd. Double BAFTA nominee, BIFA winner, five times BAA winner, Chris has won awards at many international festivals.
