Movie Info

Based on an original screenplay by Director Lee Sales and actors Francis Pope and George Russo, Turnout is set in Hoxton, East London where all 3 grew up. Our story follows George and Sophie, they're saving money to go on their first holiday together, the deposit is paid, and they have two weeks left to pay the outstanding balance of 2,000. Sophie has entrusted George with her holiday savings and is keen to settle the debt with the travel agents. The only trouble is, unbeknown to Sophie, George is flat broke. In a vain attempt to raise cash, George uses Sophie's holiday money to fund an ill judged deal.

  • While Turnout is hardly a slice of London life like you've never seen before, Sales is certainly one to watch.

  • Lee Sales's film makes Hoxton look like purgatory, what with George's friends, pubs blaring music and nearly everyone sniffing the stuff. Our poor middle-class girl hasn't got a chance.

  • What went wrong for Ophelia Lovibond? It was all looking gangbusters after a string of entry-level Hollywood roles. Now here she is, bolt-on girlfriend in a third-rate Brit lad-flick.

  • Much of the dialogue is drowned by thumping music.

  • Turnout is well acted and nicely paced, but it struggles to find the right tone and it's ultimately let down by an unlikeable lead character, the occasional snatch of dodgy dialogue and some irritating script problems.

  • There's a lot of talent both in front of and behind the camera on this gripping, low-budget London drama, so it's frustrating that the script doesn't give everyone more to work with.
