Movie Info

This British drama follows a day in the lives of four poor youths living in an impoverished neighborhood in West London, where the pressure and desperation of poverty propels each of them towards the choice between a life of bleakness, violence, and crime, and the terrifying prospect of striving for a better life. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Despite being rather graphic and unflinching in its subject matter, there is a genuine humanity toward its characters.

The fact is, while Kidulthood tries to be raw and gritty, it's really just a mish-mash of events that's missing characters that you genuinely care for or even begin to understand.

Audience Reviews for Kidulthood

A very good film with some young English actors. I'm not sure if this was a film made for TV but it has that feel to it. It's raw, gritty and brutal showing the life of a group of teenagers in West London. Unfortunately some scenes are quite true to what is going on with inner city teenagers today and the gang culture. Fades a little towards the end but still a good watch.......now to see the sequel adulthood.

Hmmm, Kidulthood is a strange fish. It's a little exaggerated but then again, nasty stuff is going on today as far as youth is concerned. I think a more honest approach with the same brutality would have been more effective, and for every good performance there are 3 terrible ones. The absence of Jaime Winstone would have also helped tenfold!
Bare nonsense and ting innit blud! Will prob check out the sequel though innit!

I Really enjoyed this movie!! suprising really because i dont normally like movies like this i guess you can compare it to this is england an other london movies based on poorer and gangster children who turn to crime.
But this movie is brilliant and enlightening, i like the story and the acting and the portrayal of london children and being poor efects you.
Apart from the anoying chav language of 'yh blood' 'your goin to mash um up' and all of that i fiind annoying but looking past the dialog it really is a fantastic movie!!

An impressive (almost too realistic in parts) gritty Drama. Noel Clarke wrote and Acted in this film which shows a frightening reality and insight into the teen culture of England.

A truly intriguing tale which plays on all your emotions, from anger to empathy, to frustration and hope.

Nothing is hidden in this raw peek into a world, some people are completely oblivious to.

Looking forward to 'Adulthood'.

A great role played by Ami Ameen here, he stood out against all the others.
