A heartwarming depiction of teenage girlhood in London highlighting the importance of female friendships.
Sarah Gavron’s quietly dynamic feature follows Rocks, a teenager who, in her mother’s absence, becomes primary caregiver to her brother Emmanuelle all whilst trying to complete her GCSEs and navigate adolescent friendships.
Propelled by a strong and captivating cast of teenage girls, Rocks immerses you in the day-to-day of contemporary girlhood in London while simultaneously asking questions about the maturity thrust upon young Black girls, going beyond the typical coming-of-age narrative.
Selected for the special presentation strand of the 2019 London Film Festival.
