Also here you have a hoodie with is a very common convection in Social Realism films, because the hoodies is such a common item of clothing

Mise-en-scene This is an good example of an establishing, and how the lighting in this films is mainly natural, this shot has Karl and Bill in suit, but in the film they never wear suits and Karl even calls it a money suit. This is an example of how most of the film is shot in the one house, the house is actually owned by Robert Hill (Bill) and the mise-en-scene is all natural.
Conventions London/ rough Estates are a very common in social realism films they show the working class, when people see it in films they think of a tough life and gangs so it help convey the whole social realism message.

Mise-en-scene Here we have the mise-en-scene of two characters, the mise en scene in this film is very light until later on in day it becomes dark to show how the day had become more and more dangerous through every action they make, these two scenes show how the two characters our in feeling the same because there friends have turned there back on them. The whole look of every character is a bit rough and (chav like) and shot like the ones I have shown just show how they are in a rough place (literally they are in a alley).
