(Full screener link for review available by request)
Written and directed by award winning director Nicole Albarelli, TO DREAM is a story about friendship, at a time in your life when that means everything. It’s about the kind of friendship that devours you. Swallows you whole and makes you feel alive. Set against a harsh inner city backdrop, best friends, LUKE (Ed Hayter) and TOMMY (Freddie Thorp), live in an unforgiving part of London. They’ve known each other forever. Having dropped out of school and still living at home, they’re dreaming about what’s coming next.
Their big plan has always been to escape London’s grime and head for an American paradise, where all your dreams come true. It’s a dream that’s helped them escape the harsh realities of growing up in abusive homes and it’s a dream that cements their friendship. Tortured by flashbacks, family secrets and an abusive father, Luke desperately clings to a world that no longer seems to want him. Tommy is the only one who can pull Luke from his shell. Tommy walks a thin line between impish teenage rebellion and falling into a world of serious crime. The only thing stopping him from jumping feet first is Luke and their ultimate plan. When Tommy becomes increasingly threatened by Luke's new girlfriend, NIKKI (Diana Vickers), his dedication quickly turns to desperation.
After witnessing Luke receive another shit kicking from his dad, Tommy decides to fabricate a string of lies with the help of local thug, EASY (Adam Deacon) in a desperate attempt to protect Luke from harm and secure their childhood dream. But loyalty can be a dangerous thing when you aim for the horizon and drive with your eyes shut. So, in one final act of twisted fate, Tommy risks everything...to save the dream. END.
"To Dream is an authentic tragedy, a rarity in how well it threads it all together and while there is a kind of hopelessness to it all, it is nonetheless uncompromising in its finale. Highly recommended" USA REVIEW

Nicole's film provide a unique insight into imperfect worlds. She is part of a new wave of female directors who are breaking through into what has been a predominantly male profession.

Women that are causing this spike are generally involved in the Indie side of the film industry.
