Real

An authentic and heart-warming love story as a young couple struggle to manage personal hardship at the start of their blossoming relationship. This impressive debut feature marks actor turned writer-director Aki Omoshaybi as a real talent to watch.

In an unremarkable inner -city area, sparks fly between well-dressed Kyle (Aki Omoshaybi) and equally poised Jamie (Pippa Bennett-Warner). Yet despite their outward appearances, both are struggling to move on from hardship they’d rather keep hidden. As their pasts resurface, threatening to break them apart before their relationship has even begun, the growing intimacy between the pair is captured beautifully in Omoshaybi’s tender drama.
