On the sixth anniversary of T’s death, his four friends meet as they always do for a game of snooker and a night to celebrate T’s life. As they excavate the past and measure their own lives against T’s, secrets are revealed and allegiances shift as quickly as the drinks are downed. Can they put to rest the guilt they feel over T’s untimely death? And will their friendship survive the final betrayal? In a volatile political climate, Ishy Din opens a timely window into a strand of British Muslim life that often remains unseen. Through sparky dialogue, Snookered probes into the lives of these young men and their fragile masculinity, burdened by cultural expectations yet charged with personal dreams.

Lots of shouting. The characters and plot are 2D but credible, however the whole thing seemed a bit on wheels, and the hair-trigger aggression was a bit exhausting. Some decent acting here; I think the fault was in script and direction. I do hope the Bush doesn't go the way of the Arcola and think that the sincere desire to share new perspectives absolves them from having to meet the quality bar.
