Dirty Pretty Things

After lounging around the apartment for most of yesterday, I decided to head out and see movie titled: Dirt Pretty Things which focuses on the invisible class of illegal immigrants in London. The movie revolves around Nigerian born Okwe (Chiwetel Ejiofor), who drives a cab and also works at a hotel. While working at the hotel, he fishes out of a human heart in a clogged toilet. Eventually, he finds out that his boss the hotel manager is part of a criminal ring trafficking human body parts from illegal immigrants who get in return a small sum of money and a fake passport. I won’t give away much more of the movie as I highly recommend to anyone out there who seeks an alternative to the parade of big budget sequels. It offers social commentary without being preachy and is somewhat disturbing, but also quite engrossing at the same time.
