the bike thief
The gritty London set thriller comes to UK Digital in May.

Food delivery riders have been a godsend to many of us throughout the last year of lockdown, but their job is notoriously dangerous. Like a modern update of the Italian neorealist classic Bicycle Thieves, writer/director Matt Chambers' The Bike Thief stars Alec Secareanu (God’s Own Country) as an Eastern European immigrant to London whose livelihood is upended when his delivery moped is stolen, leaving him with no income.

The Bike Thief is on UK Digital from May 3rd.

Check out the trailer and poster below.




The official synopsis reads:

The Rider is an ordinary, hard-working man. Everything he does is done to protect and support his family. He works as a delivery driver for a local Pizza restaurant, which happens to be owned and run by his landlord. The Rider’s wife, Elena, spends her days cleaning grand houses and caring for their two children. When the Rider’s moped is stolen, his world turns upside down and a race against time starts to recover the source of his livelihood.
