Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's a portrait of similar struggles existing in proximity of time and place; of individual battles being fought side by side yet alone.
Rotten: "A Hundred Streets" seems oddly unequal to the status of its charismatic name cast, headlined by Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton.
Rotten: It's six or so characters in search of a meaningful movie.
Rotten: Though there's clearly a compassionate impulse behind Leon F. Butler's class-conscious screenplay, it rapidly devolves into implausible melodrama.
Beautiful, complex, and interesting characters. Hard to find such high quality British movies. And plus Idris Elba's in it, so there's always that!
I read poor reviews online before I watched. I'm glad I didn't listen. It was a very emotionally moving film. Several different lives crossing paths and I could relate to each.
Disaapointed to say the least. ugh!
