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.
