Great cast , Tommy is a natural
29 June 2016 | by garethjosephdalySee all my reviews

The cast were well selected, loved seeing some new faces also. I have seen a few films at this years East London Film Fest and have to give A Punters Prayer 10/10. I'm looking forward to seeing Tommy O'neil Playing more rolls in the future, he came across as a natural! There's some humour in the film which came across real and organic from the well selected personalities. The movie is intense with a real look into the bookie culture in London, I suppose a big lesson to avoid these money grabbing bookmakers. I noticed the films location is in Palmers Green and there were a few shots that really brought in the feel of suburbia London. Have to big up savvas demichel WOW
