“Power can be ruthless, absolute and at times invisible. Jack, a fostered boy on the run for attempted murder, uses the opportunity to hide in the house of an old deaf-mute man, who he can threaten to keep his mouth shut. Their power balance at first seems clear, Jack is violent and intimidating whilst the old man is scared and helpless. We The Kings tells through a series of flashbacks how Jack got involved in acts of crime, related to his fond relationship with his younger fostered brother. The more Jack’s past is revealed, the more apparent it becomes that he is just a boy, desperate and hiding behind a facade that can crack all too easily. Meanwhile a more malicious side to the old man begins to show. Perhaps he too, is not all that he appears to be. Shot in striking blue-greens in the setting of a murky house, We The Kings is a portrait of two tortured souls, played by Elliot James Langridge and Timothy West with electrifying intensity. It is a study of what it means to tear down human dignity, to cover up in hiding and to preserve and lose power.”
