Sidney's Chair (1995)

Film details


Stepney, London, 1967. You're twelve years old and life is all about football cards, bubble gum machines, corner shops and bomb sites. One day you hear they're making a big film down your street - with some `coloured' American, Sidney Poitier, in it. Definitely an event not to be missed. Only for Ricci, his adventure doesn't quite turn out as planned.
