cannot believe this is the directorial debut of Ben Drew!
If, like me, you are not down with the kids enough to get all the lingo, you may find it a bit hard to get into this. However once you get passed that this is a great film about modern life in Britain for the youth...
It's shot very documentary style, and also almost has a sense of being a musical, as the urban songs laced through the film match the scenes perfectly and the lyrics to the songs are superb too, even if you are not a fan of this style of music you can certainly appreciate how important the songs are to this film.
There are some truly desperate characters and situations explored through the story but there is a good sense of redemption towards the end.
There are some good extras too - especially a very inspirational speech by Ben Drew to an audience of students, in which he describes the meaning behind and the reason for making the film.
