SIM Ep 551 Flicking #18: Rocks

Sarah Gavron and Theresa Ikoko's 2019 coming-of-age drama Rocks is our Yosra's homegrown pick for this month's deep delve into our favourite films. It’s the story of Shola, AKA Rocks (Bukky Bakray) – a 15-year-old east Londoner, and force of nature, who returns home from school to find her depressed mum gone, leaving Rocks to look after herself and her little brother – and a first-time watch for Mick and Hannah. The team chat the power of female collaboration, being a teenage girl, raising little brothers, and what they'd do to help a friend in an almost impossible situation.
