Dirty Pretty Things



Dirty Pretty Things

A film location with a grizzly secret, well ask Okwe!

Location: 4 Whitehall Court, Horseguards Avenue, SW1A 2EP

Description: 'Dirty Pretty Things' was released in 2002, a film directed by Stephen Frears and written by Steven Knight.

A drama about two illegal immigrants in London, it was was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and won a British Independent Film Award for 'Best Independent British Film' in 2003.

'Chiwetel Ejiofor's' Nigerian exile Okwe drives a minicab by day, at night he's a porter in a hotel that's home to some shady goings-on.

When Okwe stumbles upon the hotel's dirty secret, he is placed in an impossible dilemma. A decent man, how can he do the right thing - given his precarious status - and still protect the people he cares about?

This film location was the 'Baltic Hotel' in this superb drama, where Okwe has to retrieve a surplus organ from a toilet! A human heart!
