Storyline

Set against the backdrop of an underground, bohemian London, Kids In Love offers a new take on the traditional coming of age story. Drifting through his gap year with internships and travel plans, Jack (Will Poulter) has always suspected there was more to life than this. A chance encounter with the beautiful and ethereal Evelyn (Alma Jodorowsky) and her friends, including free spirited Viola (Cara Delevingne), swerves his life radically off course. She is like no one he's ever met before, and he quickly becomes caught up in a whirlwind of all-day parties and wild nights in London's hidden dives with her charismatic friends. Giving up everything to follow Evelyn and her hedonistic lifestyle, it takes Jack a while to realise what he's leaving behind, that love isn't a game you want to lose and that these people might not be the kindred spirits he first thought.

Well, there's always a first time for everything.
24 July 2017 | by Reno RanganSee all my reviews

Coming-of-age romance-drama from Britain. Low budget film that was shot a couple of years ago, but saw a delayed release. Everybody knows Will Poulter from 'Narnia' and apart from that he had done a good number of big films, but most of them are side roles. This is his film, the story was told from his character.

The story of a teen boy who always been a good boy, but now after meeting a girl on the street, decides to explore the life on the crazy side. It was the affection on her that changed his path. His expectation was to make her fall in love with him back, but it was a complicated environment. What are all his options, and his attempts that leads to the story's end.

Totally refreshing cast. It was Will Poulter's film, but if you see the film poster it was Cara Delevingne in the front with a big pose who has only a small part in the story. But the reason was, her face, the most marketable among others in the film. The film was not that good, though a decent one.

The story perspective and purpose was good, but a little slow, even for a shorter than 90 minute film. The French actress, Alma was good. I liked some of the film scenes, not the overall film. But a nice effort, only if it was set in Brasil, particularly that carnival scene, it would have been a very cheerful flick.

5/10
