Reviews

Trife is a 15-year-old West Londoner, torn between doing the right thing and mounting peer pressure to do the opposite. His circle of friends are not the only negative influence in his life: his uncle, too, seems to be leading him astray. When a tragedy involving a young girl s suicide forces the school to close, Trife and his classmates are faced with extracurricular activities like gang violence, drugs and casual sex. KIDULTHOOD paints a fairly bleak picture of what it must be like growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, but manages to offset the popular image of antisocial youths, with the deeply troubled, emotionally frail human beings they really are. Aml Ameen, who plays Trife, is convincing as a young boy desperately trying to escape his circumstances and not end up a victim. KIDULTHOOD takes its cue from such socially-conscious films as KIDS and packs a powerful, disturbing punch. The soundtrack features contributions from urban acts Dizzee Rascal, Kano, and The Streets.

Format: Blu-ray
In my mid-teens I was more the geeky type who hung around the library at school rather than a street lurker taking drugs and speaking in that fake 'gansta' accent which has become so popular over the last decade. Although this film reflects a social group I don't really identify with, I can still appreciate the very personal stories which weave together in this British film which speaks to an audience often overlooked - for many there are scenarios and characters in Kidulthood with whom they can identify.

This initially feels like several disjointed stories taking place shortly after the suicide of a girl, a victim of bullying. But the stories start to intersect and end up interwoven in a series of events which neatly come together and reach a tidy conclusion throughout course of the day this film is set. The film doesn't shy away from portraying the drugs culture and the sexual activities of these fifteen year olds. Their behaviour is violent, and regularly vulgar but the youths here aren't demonised, by getting to see their personal circumstances we can see how they are often misunderstood and mistreated - something even they fail to recognise.

The synthetic dialect and accent along with the macho positioning is pure pure showmanship, and inside these are still kids with insecurities. As the characters develop we see that those who take drugs want escape, those who are promiscuous want affection, and those who are violent need to feel in control of a life controlled by others. Kidulthood doesn't glamorise drug taking or underage sex, for those involved it all seems so cool but for us the viewer we get to see their microcosm from the outside and instead of looking on in awe we recognise how sad it really all is.

Firstly I would like to say as a 15 year old watching this I found it interesting as to how the director of this movie portrayed this movie on how teenagers who live in deprived areas and get into trouble. Me however - I live in a good area somewhere you'll never know...
SO I wanted to say how impressed I am about this movie. It isn't THAT biased in all honesty. Its showing how ANYONE can get involved into gang life.
Firstly about the girl hanging herself because of bullying. Firstly this is a brilliant example of how how extreme in some cases bullying can get. So in this case I don't think that its that bad. But if I had to make a bad point about this film is that it has quite of unnecessarily swearing in it but im not so bothered about that.

Also I think that Alisa being pregnant at 15 is another example of how teenage girls can easily caught up into mess like this as well and how difficult it is being pregnant and being a teenager (im male by the way, I just watch a load of teenage mother programmes!) But the point is this film is aimed at teenagers to not get involved into the wrong crime. Forget the violence and sexual scenes this actually made me realise the reality of the modern day world. How easy it is to get hold of drugs, get pregnant and die in violence.

Written by and starring Noel Clarke, Kidulthood received a lot of praise on its release in the UK, both critically and from the general movie-goer. I'd even heard it called "the UK 'Kids'". Well, it is a very good film, well acted and very gritty. Sometimes it does feel as though it is overacted to scare the viewer into thinking what life is like in the inner-London estates, but still, the things portrayed do happen daily so the scenes are welcome. I wouldn't say it is anywhere near as good as 'Kids' and in fact, I find them uncomparable and although some subjects in both are reasonably close, the films are very different. Overall, Kidulthood is a well made British film about inner-city youth that is worth a look though, and Noel Clarke impresses as a writer, despite being known in the UK as an actor. Recommended. 3.5/5

I am myself a 16 year old and i can tell you that this movie is spot on. I know a lot of people have been abusing the movie but really it is down to earth. It is a realistic movie that dipicts the problems of working class youth violence in London. And i know from first hand experience that this kind of thing happens a lot in these places. The actors did a great job, especially Adam Deacon and all the actors featured are from the areas where the movie is set making it all authentic. And a lot of the characters are true to life.

People who turn down this movie dont tend to really understand what is going on and I wouldnt let their views turn you away from it.

Gritty, down to earth, rough, emotional and a sensational soundtrack. MUST SEE

Kidulthood is one of those films that will incite debate. Love it or hate it, Kidulthood serves as a commentary on contemporary society, from which ever angle you choose to look.

The film centres around a group of teenagers at high school in inner-city London. With the suicide of one of their classmates, they are given the day off, using it for less than constructive means, resulting ultimately in tragedy.

If the extreme storylines don't feel a bit too much for your tastes, the language certainly will. At times, you feel yourself screaming for a full sentence to be uttered, as the film would appear to give a negative view of today's youth. But, the film's fast pace, however, reflects a youth growing up too fast, tangled in a web of sex, drugs and violence before receiving a National Insurance number. You can't argue that this film depicts elements within our society.

Despite this extreme nature and inconsistencies among the characters, Kidulthood is definately worth your hard-earned time, particularly for the direction of Menhaj Huda. Clever use of camerawork give the film a stylish feel and the more poignant moments of the film are dealt with believably, building to a rarity in modern cineam: a strong ending.

Whatever message you feel this film offers, it certainly works. Despit its flaws, it gives a good depiction of modern teenage life. Whether portraying the extremes or an accurate message, kidults will love this film!
