Stafford Film Theatre: Rocks
Sarah Gavin / UK 2019 / 93 min / Cert 12
An uplifting coming of age film telling the story of Rocks, an East London teenager left to care for herself and her young brother after their mother walks out. Directed by Sarah Gavin and capturing Tower Hamlets in vivid summer colours, the performance of this largely non-professional local cast is raw and honest, exploring the themes of teenage resilience, and female friendship. Bukky Bakery received a BAFTA rising star award for her portrayal of Rocks, combining heart-breaking naivety with street smart confidence and joy. This film is such a rush of vitality. It rocks (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian). The most authentic film about British teens in years. (Clarisse Loughry, Independent).
