I just watch the movie Attack the Block and I gotta tell ya’ the writing was really good. It was a cute movie. It’s a notable in that both John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Jodie Whittaker (the 13th Doctor on BBC’s Doctor Who) were in it and it was some of their “Early Work”.

I think it’s notable for a few reasons, only one of which I want to write about here: Spiderman Sheets.

There’s a scene where Jodie Whittaker goes into an abandoned apartment where John Boyega’s Character has been living and there’s a dusty disused Child’s bedroom where the bed is covered in Spiderman sheets.

Those few lines of dialogue and the vidual of the Spiderman sheets tell us everything we need to know about the last 10 years of John Boyega’s Life.

Fantastic writing. SHOW, DON’T TELL.
