Film: Click for more info

After the excellent Kidulthood and not so excellent Adulthood comes another film about life as a kid on the streets of London. Thievery, guns, sex, violence and even lesbianism all make an appearance as we are told the story of three days in the life of four girlfriends.

Each arc is shown linearly, with the tape "rewinding" at the end of each, and this parallelism lends itself to some wonderful storytelling as mysteries are both uncovered and solved. Add to that some excellent acting by faces known from the past two films and you end with a pretty gritty, yet fun, crime thriller.

Well made, this is really the film Adulthood should have been. Totally recommended, so make sure you catch it while you can.
