John Boyega’s performance in Small Axe: Red, White and Blue is stunning. He captures the depth of Leroy Logan being a new father, truly caring about his job even though he is not accepted by his co-workers, and dealing with his family disproving of his choices. The story itself is hard to take in, but it’s honest and necessary, as are the other four films in Steve McQueen’s Small Axe anthology. Together, the collection of five films tell personal stories from the West Indian Community in London between the late 1960s and the mid 1980s. You can watch Small Axe on Amazon Prime Video.
