Kidult­hood di­rec­tor Men­haj Huda has pro­duced a comin­gof-age tale of­fer­ing a snapshot of the chal­lenges faced by Asian youth in 21st cen­tury Bri­tain. It ex­plores the dou­ble lives of an en­tire gen­er­a­tion who are caught be­tween honouring their par­ents’ wishes and es­tab­lish­ing their iden­tity in the con­sumerist West. Ash Khan (Floyd) is con­tem­plat­ing drop­ping out of col­lege to pur­sue his am­bi­tions as a DJ but his older brother de­liv­ers a re­al­ity check. “You have two choices: You ei­ther fin­ish your course or you come and work for me full-time,” he barks. Like his three friends Ash finds him­self caught be­tween his own dreams and fam­ily loy­alty, search­ing for en­light­en­ment in a haze of booze and drugs. FAM­ILY WATCH: Swearing, Sex, Vi­o­lence.
