Steve is a working-class boy from Bristol, England. On the day he purchases his coveted motorbike, it is stolen from in front of his house. He needs to find it quickly, so he seeks help from local “fences” scoundrel friends and his tough-nut brother to track down the bike. There is a strong moral theme examining the culture of the period, peer pressures and difficult individual choices. Ultimately, it’s a fun film with heart, that combines nostalgia, strong characters, and a fast-paced narrative. Not to mention a terrific soundtrack of 80s music! Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
“The Fence doesn’t shy away from the poverty and social issues faced by Hartcliffe in the 1980s and yet the film is filled with moments of nostalgia, brilliant comedic timing, and pure charm that are worthy of attention.” –The Bristol Magazine
“A sparky feature debut for writer-director William Stone, fronted by a mix of fresh and familiar onscreen faces.” –The Guardian
