Sam Adewunmi is charismatic as a Nigerian-British foster child forced back to the inner city in Shola Amoo’s heartfelt coming of age film.
The Last Tree is about a Nigerian-British boy called Femi (played as a young kid by Tai Golding, and as an older teenager by Sam Adewunmi) who was fostered out to Mary (Denise Black), a carer in the countryside.
The film follows the story of Femi, who, after a happy childhood in rural Lincolnshire, moves to inner London to live with his mum. Struggling with the unfamiliar culture and values of his new environment, teenage Femi has to figure out which path to adulthood he wants to take, and what it means to be a young black man in London.
