Indie Gems: Honour

 Honor isn't everything...

Poor Mona. (Aiysha Hart) She's a successful woman from Pakistan living in London, and falls for a Punjabi man, Tanvir. (Nikesh Patel) But her mother (Harvey Virdi) and brother (Faraz Ayub) see this as dishonorable and try to kill her for shaming their family. They hire a nameless bounty hunter (Paddy Considine) to find her after she bolts on them.

The film is told out of sequence, so don't assume you know the ending right away. It's very interesting and sad knowing that things like this actually happen. I'm really becoming a big fan of Considine. I haven't seen this guy give a bad performance. All of the cast here really shine, even though there's so much tension going on.

It's very bleak and makes for a good, quiet thriller. 

Grade: B

Memorable Quote: "Come home. For me" - Adel (Shubham Saraf)
