While Jo is chained down in a dead end supermarket job, her friends are all out on their own separate adventures.

Cassandra is jetting off to New York to meet her Internet boyfriend; Kerrys is on a one woman crusade fighting for female liberation and Shannon is on a one way trip to meet her maker.

But a chance encounter with some diamond thieves sends their separate worlds on a collision course with not only each other, but fate itself.

Even though this film has possibly the worst opening twenty minutes of any film (it was so bad and confusing, i nearly turned the thing off), if you stick with it, you will be treated to a film, that isn't as clever as the Magnolia/Run Lola Run hybrid movie it thinks it is, but a film that is pretty to look at and gets a lot better once you realise what Clarke is doing with this film.

I can understand why so many people hate this film, it's too laid back to be a thriller, and it's too threatening to be a comedy, so it suffers from the schizophrenic movie syndrome so many other overlooked films have, it's hard to put this film into a genre.

But there is a lot of fun to be had here. There are some good cameos from Smith and Miller, the cast are attractive on the verge of annoying and once all the loose ends are tied up, you are quite pleased at the very gooey, predictable ending.

It's not for all tastes, but for some reason I think Clarke has made a good movie, and continues to be one of Britains better film makers.

This film combines the grindhouse style with "Sex and the City" as it examines the lives of four young girls over a weekend. It starts with Shannon (Ophelia Lovibond) who comes home and discovers her mother is leaving. She desperately needs to talk to her girlfriends who suddenly don't have any time for her. We discover why as the film examines the other girls' lives from their point of view.

Cassandra (Tamsin Egerton ) has left to go to NYC for a piano audition and to lose her virginity to her Skype friend. Things don't go as planned. Kerays (Shanika Warren-Markland) is from Brazil and prefers girls. Joanne (Emma Roberts) is working the night shift at Ted's grocery mart where much of the action happens. Toss in the fact they cross path with some unlikely jewel thieves and you got the bare bones outline.

The film appears to be designed for older teen girls as it combines the more hip grindhouse style, but makes teen girls the heroines of the story. The film blends aspects of comedy, crime drama, action, and thriller but unfortunately does each very sparingly. It is a story in which you can lose interest.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, brief nudity.

Fans of Kidulthood and Adulthood hold your breath, this is something that is equally sharp and darkly humorous as Noel Clarke's previous dramatic hits.

With a quartet of promising British teenagers this has more than just eye candy as the recruitment of the actresses has strong sustenance in Tamsin Egerton's forever developing persona and Emma Roberts plugging into more popular roles, and is due to appear in Scream 4.

The casting is pretty much perfect but with the four leads it delivers on all levels, comedy and drama with strong anxiety and energy. The stars of tomorrow? Perhaps but with a film as indie as this and without a strong American distributor it will not reach as many as it should. My friend and I were the only two in the screen last week.

With Clarke's previous hits you were always guaranteed strong real life issues and the script does not disappoint. There are your usual family rivalries, bitter ex's and sharp antagonism for friendships. Where the film hits its stronger points are when the issues build higher on themselves, such as when Egerton's character is in America and things go from bad to worse. The moment with the piano is sensational, where the moment with Eve is stereotyping on a ridiculous nature.

The film itself is shot on location in London and New York, diversifying touristy with curious drama that adds an edge. The nature of Adulthood's sharp turning camera happy twisting presentation is manifested here to amazing levels. Sharp twists, vibrant lighting, various angles that can occasionally stray from the plot's moment but adds a bit of unique viewing.

One great device used is the storyline.

An enjoyable film from Noel Clarke the writer/director/actor of Kidulthood and Adulthood. The film centers around 4 girls and their stories are told out of sequence and how they some how get involved with stolen diamonds.

This film is very entertaining, the female characters are fleshed out, and are well acted by the four leads and supporting female characters are just as memorable. Unfortunately I felt the film had too many strands and at times lacked focus, while I understand the need to explore all four storylines, the film could have taken 15 - 30 minutes off the 2 hour running time and been as effective.

The memorable story lines for me personally were Olivia Lovibond and Tamsin Egerton's characters Lovibond's character isn't coping particularly well with what's happening to her, while Egerton's character is off to New York City to lose her virginity and land an internship of sorts with revered musician and it doesn't go to plan and results in some quite dark and funny consequences.

Overall I found this film very entertaining and worth a watch.
