As a 50 year old man even I thought it was a good film
29 November 2019 | by coombsstephenSee all my reviews

This film is aimed at a demographic that really isnt well represented at the Cinema and even on main stream TV. The teen to 25 range who over most generations feel isolated from the people older and younger are well represented here.

This is a novel and clever film which mixes a very good plot, good acting with a unique idea of adding grime songs within the scenes to explain the story.

The film is raw and shocking but I think still probably shy's away from the real brutal truth of life on the streets in modern inner City London but for good reason as it doesn't set out to be totally shocking, it just wants to tell a story.

At the core is a good film with a good story and made a different way, for even just that it is worth a watch.
