Movie Info

Two teenagers want to take a shortcut to fame and wealth in this comedy-drama from England. Nicole (Kerrie Hayes) is a fifteen-year-old girl living in Liverpool who has practically become a stranger to her family; her parents have divorced, with her father remarrying and spending most of his time with his new children, while her mother works nights and rarely gets home while her daughter is still there. Nicole is fascinated with soccer, particularly Lee Cassidy (Jamie Doyle), the handsome

What's most alluring, though, on an intimate scale, is how far Heymann tries to tell her story not through talk but through physical observation and music (even if she relies on a lot of Ladytron).

It's an intriguing idea, but the film is too timid and awkward to really get going

Shadows on the Wall

All at once a sensitive coming-of-age drama, a mildly implausible abduction thriller and a bittersweet love letter to Liverpool, Heymann's film plays like This Is England for the celebrity-obsessed Noughties.

The initial stages of this film -- just hanging out with Nicole and Jasmine -- are considerably more interesting than the rather strained denouement.

It doesn't quite sustain itself all the way through, but Kicks displays an intelligence and verve that are hard to deny.

It's a promising feature debut...

The film moves in and out of credibility as if on a dimmer switch, but Hayes and Burley give it the wattage they have.

The film disappoints because, just like Lee's young kidnappers, once the set-up's out of the way, it has no idea what to do next.

Fatally undermined by the implausibility of the situation and the banal dénouement's disappointing lack of drama.

Engaging and witty tale of girlie bonding let down by a clunky third act.
