Movie Info

Set against the backdrop of an underground, bohemian London, Kids In Love offers a new take on the traditional coming of age story. Drifting through his gap year with internships and travel plans, Jack has always suspected there was more to life than this. A chance encounter with the beautiful and ethereal Evelyn and her friends, including free spirited Viola, swerves his life radically off course. She is like no one he's ever met before, and he quickly becomes caught up in a whirlwind of all-day parties and wild nights in London's hidden dives with her charismatic friends. Giving up everything to follow Evelyn and her hedonistic lifestyle, it takes Jack a while to realise what he's leaving behind that love isn't a game you want to lose and that these people might not be the kindred spirits he first thought.

Critic Reviews for Kids in Love

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (1)

While the film's balmy good vibes are occasionally infectious, the narrowness of its worldview does begin to grate.

Kids in Love often resembles a Gap or Budweiser commercial more than it does a feature film.

November 1, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/10 | Full Review…

Kids in Love treads the line between a video commercial for Anthropologie and the creeping anxiety of reality and adulthood that threaten to crash the funky, bohemian party of a group of London teens.

Not everyone will be charmed by the film's uncritical depiction of upper-crust privilege, but the ever-watchable Poulter holds things together, while Cara Delevingne, perfectly at home in this milieu, adds her customary boho chic in a supporting role.

Messy for sure, and the boho backdrop will alienate/irritate, but Foggin adeptly captures the flush of first love.

January 1, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Flat coming-of-age film has cursing, sex.

Audience Reviews for Kids in Love

The ambition is here and 50 percent of the casting works, it's the undercooked script that stops this from taking off. I hate the cliche pitfall of the boyfriend being a great guy on the surface but is a horrible person underneath. Can't they just make the main guy a bit of the villain because he is trying to jump on the guys girlfriend? Makes sense to me, still going to be a lot of conflict.
