Set against the backdrop of an urban West London, Kidulthood focuses on 36hrs in the life of 15year-old Trife (Aml Ameen), as he battles between right and wrong, friendship, family, and love.
When timid Katie (Rebecca Martin) commits suicide, her fellow classmates at school are given the day off as remembrance. What follows is a turbulent day for Trevor ‘Trife’ Hector as he comes under pressure to do what is right by the law, his rudeboi pals Jay (Adam Deacon) and Mooney (Femi Oyeniran), his pregnant girlfriend Alisa (Red Madrell), and his vicious gangster uncle Curtis (Cornell John), whilst being pursued by local bully Sam (Noel Clarke – Doctor Who) – out for revenge after Trife and friends humiliated him.
Fighting, smoking weed, stealing – the day culminates at a house party where Trife and Alisa attempt to mend their tumultuous relationship for the sake of their unborn child, shortly before Trife is violently attacked by Sam. However, Trife goes on to save Sam’s life when he is targeted by Katie’s brother, who blames Sam for her death. Yet vengeance is dished out in a surprisingly tragic finale.
With an outstanding cast, realistically portraying a life of sex, drugs and danger in inner-city London, the city itself plays a huge part – from council estates, buses and tubes, to £multi-million mansions. Listen beyond the colloquialisms and urban dialect, and you’ll hear dialogue that is rich in pain, passion and a wanting for a better life.
The film incorporates a fantastic soundtrack from some of the UK’s biggest grime and hip-hop players (Jehst, Roots Manuva, Shystie, The Streets, Dizzee Rascal to name but a few!) – the audience truly feels caught up in the struggles and conflicts the protagonists face.
Kidulthood is an accurate and attention-grabbing portrayal of a day in the life for many living in the city, and definitely worth a glimpse to see a world frequently hidden and overlooked.
