A story about a group of rich kids, from old money families, north of Copenhagen, from a world where people with ambition and power rule. The kids are often left alone, feeling rejected and spending most of their time living on the edge, transcending boundaries, seeking attention, often trying to get revenge against people who don't listen to them. Away from the superficiality and pretention of their social class, they live a secret life, in which power, money, sex, drugs and endless secrets dominate. A lifestyle only a few of them can survive and where most become scarred for life. Writer, director Rune Bendixen spent 6 months with the group of rich kids, interviewing them. His script for "Rich Kids" is based on these interviews. Written by
I like this movie...It's so social. It really reminds me of most of the youngsters at some of the fashionable night clubs in Bulgaria. The movie has some kind of documentalistic character. I mean the different kind of themes the "rich kids" are talking about - friendship, money, family, sex, drugs, etc. Quite different from the US movies. That's why I like European cinema. And the soundtrack is great.It's a pleasure to listen to it in the car...gives me speed...In fact "Rich Kids" is one of my favourite movies. Why its rating is so low? I think that it can help people find themselves in this so commercial life where feelings are blocked by ambitions.So, that's my opinion. Excuse me for my terrible English but I'm just a Bulgarian girl.
