“a darkly beautiful novel… a scathing portrait of life in a totalitarian society, ‘The White King’ is both brutal and disarmingly tender.” — New York Times

Reviews & Buzz

Charles Gant @ Screen International,
"The White King is intelligently transposed into an unnamed English-speaking totalitarian country by Belgian/English husband-and-wife team Jörg Tittel and Alex Helfrecht, making a promising feature debut... through the eyes of a 12-year-old boy, the film succeeds best at evoking its sinister, hermetic world, as young Djata (Lorenzo Allchurch) deals with the absence of his political prisoner father."

Rachel Bowles @ The Skinny
“Topical, dramatic, moving”

Katrina Conaglen @ WOW247
“Wrenching, compelling and all too timely”

David Kettle @ The Arts Desk
Fascinating and unsettling

Susanna Norbiato @ Dark Side Cinema,
An elegant and intimate tale, perfect performances.

David Monteith @ Geek Syndicate
