A story about a troubled boy growing up in England, set in 1983. He comes across a few skinheads on his way home from school, after a fight. They become his new best friends even like family. Based on experiences of director Shane Meadows.
Disturbing, dark, low-budget independent film about teen-agers in New York City. The story focuses on Telly (Leo Fitzpatrick), a teen who has a goal to de-flower as many virgins as he can. When one of his old encounters discovers that she is H.I.V.-positive, after only one encounter with a guy, Telly remains undaunted. Written by

The movie was actually cast long before financing was pulled together. Many were selected from Harmony Korine's own group of friends, who were, incidentally, the basis for some of the script's characters. In the year or so it took to secure investors the initial cast crop had either aged considerably or, after more thought, been replaced. See more »

Kids is a very realistic movie about a day in the life of a teen living with an STD and not knowing it.
Kids was an amazing movie. It portrayed real life crisis's that many do not like to even talk about. If you open your eyes, that movie in reality is what goes around everyday, everywhere. Kids showed the harsh reality of life, living with a disease that you do not even know you have, and if you have one also, this movie makes you feel a little more comfortable.
"But the truth is. I don't know any kids with AIDS. No one I know has ever died from that. It's like some weird make-believe story that the whole world believes." I personally believed that too, until i found out i had one, and once I did, everything changed. This movie may be very controversial but I urge people to watch it, because the lessons learned are endless.
