Critic Reviews for Kicks
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
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.
