Everywhere and Nowhere is a 2011 coming of age British drama film focusing on the identity struggles of Ash (James Floyd) a young British Pakistani who is torn between the traditions of middle-class family life and his passion for DJing. The film comes from Kidulthood director Menhaj Huda.


Young and educated, Ash leads a privileged life but finds himself between two cultures: hedonistic, multi-cultural London with his friends and a traditional Pakistani family upbringing in the middle class suburbs. Tormented by the idea of entering the family business, Ash rebels and he finds identity through blending classic Bollywood soundtracks with contemporary electronic music.



The film received largely negative reviews from critics, with only 1 from 12 critics giving it a positive write-up on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.[1]

However James Floyd got significant critical praise for his lead performance, including Screen International,[2] The Guardian [3] and Time Out.[4]
