Film description

Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane, Suffragette) returns with a vivid portrait of British teen life and a love letter to sisterhood, created with a 75% female cast and crew. Fifteen-year-old Rocks has a tight-knit group of friends and ambitions to run her own business. After her mum vanishes, leaving some cash and an apology note, Rocks is suddenly forced to take care of her younger brother. ‘There’s a crackling, raucous energy to Sarah Gavron’s dynamic Rocks... A deft balance of drama, humour and hormonal adolescent huffs, Rocks is a real treat: full of warmth, honesty and authenticity.’ (Wendy Ide, Screen International)
