A redemptive coming of age story about a wayward teen Jamie (Letitia Wright), who is encouraged by Kate, an inspiring and unconventional social worker to use singing as an escape from her troubled background. Jamie's loyalties soon become torn between Kate and her possessive and volatile best friend, Leann. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. Nominated for Most Promising Newcomer at the British Independent Film Awards. ""Urban Hymn" is so carefully and lovingly made by director Michael Caton-Jones and his leads that it's hard to begrudge the British drama its familiar premise, especially as you squint at the screen through tears." - Kimber Myers, The Los Angeles Times
