When country-girl Tia comes to stay with her cousin in the city, little does she realise that her naivety will disturb the delicate balance of cousin Davina and her group of friends.

The other positive review must be a studio plant
9 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

The biggest shock of my weekend was finding out this production didn't star anyone from Hollyoaks. There is nothing here to suggest the 'stars' could tackle anything more taxing than a toothpaste commercial. It is also highly amusing to note the director's desperate attempts at urban authenticity, with loads of street slang, f-words and yoof tunes on the soundtrack at every given opportunity. Shame he made such a pigs ear of everything else.

It's a very earnest effort at making a teen British drama, and the moral about wasting your life committing crimes rather than getting an education is a good one. Tragically, this lesson is delivered in a scene which is more likely to elicit laughs then get the audience thinking, and against a backdrop of tedious black stereotypes swearing at each other and behaving like a bunch of morons, you're far more likely to be reaching for the OFF switch then learning how to better yourself.

Actually, I've got something to teach you... DON'T WATCH THIS MOVIE. IT'S RUBBISH. There you go. I'll even write it on a bit of card for you. Aren't I nice? 2/10
