Rag Tag | Chicago Reader

Rag Tag

Two 12-year-old friends in London—Rag, whose mother is from the West Indies, and Tag, whose family is Nigerian—are separated when a social worker sends Rag to live in Birmingham, supposedly because his mother can't care for him. Rag returns as an adult, and after some initial awkwardness, some of it concerning Tag's girlfriend, Rag learns that his friend has always loved him. Subplots involve a trip to Nigeria and some illegal doings, but eventually the two become lovers destined to live happily ever after. Director Adaora Nwandu's episodic storytelling and use of fade-outs sometimes intensifies individual episodes, though not entirely successfully. 101 min.
