Goldie ft. Natalie Williams ‘I Adore You' by Lyle Lindgren

Lyle Lindgren's short film for Goldie is a wonderful piece of social realism starring Stephen Graham.

After releasing the short version earlier this month, the full-length version of this film fills in some key narrative gaps. We follow a man (played by Graham) who visits his young daughter whilst on day release from open prison. It's a heartbreaking contrast of two lives, and watching him try to balance them becomes even harder once his fellow inmates discover that he's been recording bedtime stories for his daughter on cassette in his cell.

Stephen Graham, never less than a commanding presence on screen, gives a blazing performance as a man capable of boundless love, but also tremendous violence. He released a statement about the making of the video which gives an indication of how committed he was to the project.

"This shoot was something truly special," says Graham. "It's been an absolute pleasure working with Lyle who I think is an amazingly promising young director. He's crafted a beautifully raw short film that delves into a rarely seen aspect of the prison system.  Even though it deals with dark themes and violence… there’s a tenderness to the story which was important to portray properly.

"I've known me old mucka Goldie since day so it was fantastic to be able to collaborate on this, as there's a personal connection to the themes of the film for all involved.”
