Searchlight Pictures, London & Partners and Southwark District Council have published an official Rye Lane movie trail map, showcasing the iconic South London locations featured in director Raine Allen-Miller’s much talked about feature film debut.

The romantic comedy, starring David Jonsson (“Industry,” “Deep State”) and Vivian Oparah (“Class”, “The Rebel”), will be released on Friday 17th March in cinemas across the UK, and was produced in partnership with BBC Film and BFI. It will stream exclusively on Disney’s DTC platforms as a Hulu Original in the U.S. and on Disney+ internationally for the rest of the world on March 31st.

The movie is a  DJ Films and Turnover Films production, shot on location in Peckham, Brixton and along the Southbank, with local landmarks providing a lively, colourful backdrop to Yas and Dom’s budding romance – whether that’s buying records at Peckham Soul Records, shopping at Rye Lane + Brixton Market, catching movies at the Peckhamplex and the Ritzy Brixton, or waving at boats from Millennium Bridge.

Set in the heart of South London, Rye Lane follows the whirlwind romance between Yas and Dom, two twenty-somethings, both reeling from bad break-ups, who connect over the course of an eventful day – helping each other deal with their nightmare exes, and potentially restoring their faith in romance. It features an eclectic mix of characters, fast-paced dialogue and contemporary pop culture references.

The maps will be distributed across shops, cafes, restaurants, and retail outlets in the South London area, plus available to download on the Southwark Council website – Rye Lane Map

Laura Citron, CEO of Visit London said: “It’s fantastic to see South London and some of the city’s most vibrant locations and neighbourhoods come to life on the big screen. London is one of the world’s busiest film production centres, and we’re always delighted to champion this industry and celebrate new and exciting films. We hope that Londoners enjoy following along in Yas and Dom’s footsteps around London.”

Cllr Kieron Williams, Leader of Southwark Council, said: “Peckham is the heart and soul of South London and Rye Lane is the heart of Peckham, so it’s wonderful to have so much of that colour and vibrancy captured in this heart-warming film.

“We were delighted to welcome the cast and crew to our borough for the filming and to see local businesses getting involved. Southwark is fast becoming a global centre for filmmaking, but few have captured the rich diversity and eclectic spirt of our community in the way that Rye Lane has.

“We look forward to welcoming returning and new visitors as film fans explore the fantastic local businesses, galleries and nightlife they see on the screen.”
