The story is about the interconnected lives of a diverse group of characters linked to a neighborhood street. One day, the street's residents all receive an anonymous postcard through their front doors bearing a simple message: "We want what you have." Who is behind the anonymous hate campaign? And what do they want? As the mystery of the postcards deepens, interweaving stories reveal lives filled with love and loss, fear and greed, fortune and envy, and at its heart, family and home.

I tried the book, didn't get far. Then alerted to this DVD - brilliant. Fascinating how this all comes together in the end & excellent acting as usual from toby Jones. One would not pick him out of a crowd as the actor who has the ability to always make his characters great. The Pakistanian family, their problems & banter among themselves made their lives so real & universal. I felt the meld of cultures were so well displayed - we all share basic problems. Wunmi Mosaku as the 'street warden' was so beautiful in her story & in her person.

The bonus features were worth the view time. I highly recommend this film. What a sleeper. I came away feeling the message was we all what a little of what each person has.

Race, class, culture, and lifestyle are all addressed. Who deserves to "have it all"? Notes start popping up saying "we want what you have," but no one knows what it is! Is it real estate? White Privilege? British Citizenship? Jobs? Youth? Fear, violence, and suspicions escalate until this quiet little community tears itself apart. It is surprising that it is set in GB when we tend to think of the US as the only place dealing with hate crimes.

Toby Jones makes this story splendid. Just remember that it is satirical in nature. It might be easy to forget.

Interesting but different. Toby Jones is excellent in this series.
