I am not sure why this film is getting so many poor ratings. It is an excellent piece of film-making with a cracking script, fine performances and imaginative direction. A real eye opener that deserves a wide audience.
The movie has sparked some controversy in the UK for 'glorifying' the violence, sex and drugs portrayed but that is rubbish, this is essentially a deeply moral tale at heart.
Mark Kermode gave it a very sensible and measured review on his Radio 5 slot and I am in agreement with him.
I predict that a number of the actors in Kidulthood will go on to bigger things. A group of talent to watch.
