Fantastic film that's more than just about rave culture and E's.
So many well pleased themes about family, friendship, culture, class authority just to name a few. They're all woven into the narrative with real grace and class too. Everything flows so well and with loads of stellar performances from pretty much unknown actors.
Absolutely bangin soundtrack too. Defo a real highlight from 2019!
