Academy Award-winning Judas and the Black Messiah, Nope, and Get Out actor Daniel Kaluuya makes his directorial debut with The Kitchen, alongside co-director Kibwe Tavares. The film, which premiered at the BFI London Film Festival in October, will soon come to Netflix — and the trailer promises an unforgettable ride.

Starring Top Boy actor Kane Robinson and newcomer Jedaiah Bannerman, the science-fiction drama takes place in a dystopian London, where inequality has ravaged communities and widened the gap between rich and poor. The only remaining form of social housing is called "The Kitchen". Here, an unlikely pair forge an alliance as they seek to find their families and a way out of the system working against them.

IGN declared the film a "truly impressive feature debut", praising its aesthetic, emphasis on justice and class, and the wider political statements the story makes.

The Kitchen will premiere on Netflix on Jan. 19, 2024, also showing in select UK cinemas from Jan. 12.
