ROCKS (Bukky Bakray) is a popular teenager with big dreams for the future, brilliant friends and an adoring little brother EMMANUEL (D’angelou Osei Kissiedu). But her world is turned upside down when her mother suddenly leaves. Determined to stick with her brother and avoid being taken into care against all odds, Rocks leaves her home and hides around London with the help of her loyal - or maybe not so loyal - friends.
Directed by SARAH GAVRON, Rocks is a film about the resilience and spirit of girlhood.
"This film is such a rush of vitality. It rocks." Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"This potent work about stolen childhood deserves attention because of the freshness of the cast and because it confirms that Gavron is a director to watch." Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter
