In 2013, writer/director team Stewart Alexander and Kerry Skinner called upon Tom to provide a lush, intimate score for a new independent film. Common People weaves together six stories and over thirty characters to present a dramatic, humorous and sometimes magical tale of romance, crisis and adventure on one of London’s expansive commons. The film screened nationwide at Picturehouse Cinemas.

"Common People is a rare gem, the kind that makes you thrilled to have discovered it. With no real expectations I started to watch this wonderful film, expecting a gentle reflective hour and a half - but Common People is so much more than that. With beautiful performances and a quiet firmness it pushes you to an understanding of human motive and love that is intensely moving and highly rewarding. I recommend this so highly." - Stephen Fry
