Freehold ★★★½

Will particularly strike a chord with anyone who lives in a city where apartment living and over-priced leasehold property is the norm! Director Dominic Bridges really, really doesn't like estate agents! Mim Shaikh plays Hussein, a typically unscrupulous agent who lives in his city pad. Little does he suspect that when he goes to work, a stowaway comes out to play... imaginative set up and nicely executed single location film which is powered by two fine central performances - Shaikh manages to make his character likeable despite his failings and Javier Botet's wiry physicality as Orlan is something to behold. It could have been a much darker, more insidious movie like Sleep Tight, but Bridges plays it for laughs instead and that's no bad thing.
