Rapman's feature film debut Blue Story screened in advance for Cineworld Unlimited members on Friday. The British grime artist behind YouTube hit Shiro's Story presents a gritty tale of two London friends who are torn about by gang rivalry. Meanwhile, Rapman himself narrates the highly personal story, linking the narrative back to his style of music.
So what did Unlimited audiences make of it? Corey Bulloch lauds the honesty of Rapman's approach.
