Teenage kicks… all through the night.

Stars of This is England, Kill List, Skins and Fresh Meat bring a fresh and talented slant to the coming-of-age genre. England, 1990, and Thatcher has just resigned; meanwhile three friends embark on a night out, and like the characters in all good teen movies, their lives are changed forever. With a hilarious script, a knockout soundtrack and an excellent ensemble cast, this energetic comedy is refreshing, timely and guaranteed to make you laugh out loud.

    A little too clever for its own good at times, but very watchable and pretty funny. Worth a look.
