Cast: Katie Jarvis, Rebecca Griffiths, Kierston Wareing, Michael Fassbender


Mia (Katie Jarvis), 15, lives in the decaying housing projects on the outskirts of London with her younger sister (Rebecca Griffiths) and single mother (Kierston Wareing), with whom she's always fighting. In this family, cussing and confrontation replace of any sort of civil conversation.

Excluded from school and ostracized by her friends, Mia spends her days alone, boozing and hip hopping. Then one hot summer day, her mother arrives home with a handsome guy named Connor (Michael Fassbender). As Connor begins spending more time with the family, he takes a special interest in Mia, even encouraging her to enter a dance audition. Is he a parental figure? Or a predator?

  • 3 stars "such unexpected turns - this film really captures three dimensional characters."
  • 4 stars "Surprisingly good for a low budget film, be aware this is not a typical hollywood production. Other than some odd scenes its a four stars to me."
