Interesting enough to be worth a look but has been done better elsewhere
25 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Two teenage girls head into the city together to go shopping. In the dressing room of a clothes store Julie puts on lots of pairs of bras at the same time while Sarah allows her imagination to run a little wild – both are helped by a little bit of drink as well. Fleeing the store with alarms ringing the two continue their evening by following a strange man they see on the tube, seeing it all as a bit of an adventure. Albert (as they have called him) leads them into a pub where they immediately start getting male attention.

This interesting little short starts off innocently enough with the two girls being shown as having problems at home of some sort; then we follow them into an "adult" world that they think they can handle but soon find themselves adrift in a relatively simple series of situations that are just beyond them. As a narrative not a great deal happens but it still manages to be quite interesting because it is more about the girls as teenagers rather than a story building to something. However this is not to say that it couldn't have been better, because it could have been. The writing didn't do as much as it could have done to provide a real insight into the characters of the girls and seemed to rely on the actresses a great deal. It is still interesting but it didn't leave me with a great deal to think about afterwards.

The cast are luckily quite convincing. Both leads are good; Beals is convincing and still holds onto a childlike quality while Kennedy is more sexual and playful showing that she is pushing to be older as soon as she can. Both approaches provide interesting characters and they cover up for the narrative a lot. Procter is strong but I must admit not understanding his character much other than him providing us with a frame for looking at the adult view of emerging child sexuality. He is interesting but none of the people in the pub are much more than stick figures.

Overall this film could have given me more but it is to its credit, it had made me interested enough to want more. The two actresses really do a good job and help cover the lack of narrative for the most part. Worth seeing as a look at the difficult time between childhood and adulthood but it won't please many viewers and has been done better elsewhere.
