Critic Reviews for Rocks
The resulting performances - lively, giddy and authentic - define the movie, while the lovely upbeat ending sweetens an otherwise stinging social critique.
Rocks is a film about youthful potential and the miracle of watching it flower in unpropitious soil. It's a pleasure to behold.
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.
The movie's optimism comes from the way it was put together, as an after-school collective between filmmakers, volunteers and girls like Bakray, who met screenwriter Theresa Ikoko years before cameras began to roll.
