Borrowed Time

Borrowed Time tells the story of the unlikely friendship between a hapless young burglar, Kevin (Theo Barklem-Biggs – The Inbetweeners Movie, BBC’s Silk): and his eccentric victim, pensioner Philip (Phil Davis – Quadrophenia, Vera Drake). Desperate for cash and short on options to pay back local tyrant “Ninja” Nigel, Kevin breaks into Philip’s house, only to be held hostage by the old man at gunpoint.

What follows is a bittersweet comedy about growing up and rediscovering youth in parallel, as the burglar and victim form a bond that will help them both find a way out of their respective troubles.

Promising new film maker Jules Bishop, elicits effortlessly natural performances from a fantastic cast featuring Juliet Oldfield (Bronson, The Knot) and Warren Brown (Byzantium, Homefront), and including young, up and coming British talent Andrew Ellis (This is England) and Jumayn Hunter (Attack The Block, Quartet).
