Alleycats, directed by Ian Bonhote, is presented as a “high octane, action/ thriller set in London against the back drop of the cut-throat world of illegal bike racing“.
The story centres around a group of city bike couriers, including Eleanor Tomlinson of Poldark. It begins with an unfortunate insight into what appears to be a murder mixed up in the political world, leading to a fast paced, thrill ride through two very different sides of London life.
The film offers a glimpse of the life of a bike courier, the speed, the danger and the races.
Manhattan Portage were asked to provide courier bags and drawstrings for the main characters and supporting cast to wear. The heritage of the brand, its roots in the New York courier scene, made our brand and this film a perfect pairing.
Alleycats promised an exciting, fast paced film about the lesser known world of an Alleycat, they delivered and we are very proud to have been part of it.
