Hard Tide :- Watch Hard Tide on Youtube on Fire, Jake (Nathanael Wiseman) may be a drug peddler on the streets of Margate, but this lifestyle was not by choice; his father Gaz (Ralph Brown) brought him up in such a world. Gaz, due to begin his prison sentence, tries to reconcile with Jake. However, Jake reminds him the burden he must carry as a result of Gaz i.e. his enemies are now Jake’s. Despite such parental failings, Jake shows a semblance of paternal instincts as looks out for Jade (Alexandra Newick), a neglected daughter of an alcoholic father (Grant Davis): unlike Jake’s roommate Alfie (Oliver Stark) who cares nothing for Jade, or children of any kind that matter. Broken familial bonds abound this film, leading to some rewarding, and unrewarding, moments. Jake’s own issues are factually told, and one can see his lifestyle as a result of it, but his personality doesn’t reflect this; he’s charismatic, sociable, and oddly pure. Moreover, it’s only in the film’s first act that we’re privy to character back-story, and thereafter it focuses itself elsewhere. One such area on this thematic preoccupation is between a local florist Simon (Mem Ferda), a sociopath looking to expand his drug peddling, and his father (Andy Lucas), which inverts the problematic familial bonds. Simon’s unhinged personality goes against his quaint father who is looking for a quiet life. The likes of Alfie and Simon aren’t looking for the simple life, and it’s clear they’ve seen too many popular gangster movies; Alfie sets up meetings with other dealers.
