Pete TravisCity of Tiny Lights (2016) movie trailer stars Riz Ahmed, Billie Piper, James Floyd, Cush Jumbo, and Roshan Seth. City of Ting Lights‘ plot synopsis: “Meet Tommy Akhtar (Riz Ahmed), cricket fan, devoted son to an ailing father and deadbeat private eye. He’s got an office above a cab firm, a taste for cigarettes and bourbon, and a finely tuned moral compass that he keeps hidden behind a sharp cynicism. When Tommy walks into his office one morning to find high-class prostitute Melody seeking his help, he’s launched into a story that plays as an utterly original modern noir.”

I am a fan of film noir films and french new wave films. City of Ting Lights is in-tune with both genres of films. Tommy Akhtar (Riz Ahmed) looks like he gets in way in over his head. The investigation of a disappearance leads to something that seems rather compelling involving the elite of the city. I imagine that when Akhtar catches the sent of prey, his bone, he is a dog that can’t stop, even if that will save his life.

City of Ting Lights also stars Hannah Rae, Antonio Aakeel, Vincent Regan, Danny Webb, Damson Idris, Branko Tomovic, Rizwan Shebani, and Gino Picciano.
