A scene from the movie Kidulthood.
Movie Description: The tough, sometimes violent and sexually promiscuous lives of teenagers depicted in this dynamic feature have catapulted KIDULTHOOD into the center of a national U.K. debate about kids growing up fast in today's world. When a student commits suicide after being bullied and her father takes little notice, her school gives pupils a day off in remembrance. While one girl sells oral sex favors to fund her shopping habit and another is bullied by her boyfriend, parents are shown as hopelessly out of touch. Shock horror? Not according to interviews with teens who have praised the film for telling it like it is and getting their language right for once. Boosted by a terrific street-music soundtrack, KIDULTHOOD is shot through with raw energy.
