Ashanti Omkar (film critic and journalist) and Akin Aworan (The Swinging Palm Tree Podcast) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Ashanti’s choice Rocks. Rocks is a British coming-of-age drama from director Sarah Gavron starring Bukky (BAFTA Rising Star 2021) Bakray as Olushola "Rocks”, a black teenager who suddenly finds herself the sole carer for her younger brother Emmanuel when her mother disappears. Despite being surrounded by her compassionate and close-knit friends, Rocks struggles to keep things together and find a safe space for her and her brother to stay while trying to evade social services. Rocks is both a story of female friendship and being a teenager in Britain today but also a heartbreaking reality of social care and the financial and mental hardships of single-parent families. Empowering and uplifting, credit must be given to casting director Lucy Pardee for bringing together an authentic and energetic group of inspiring actresses who carry the whole film.   [supsystic-tables id=218] With a runtime of 93 minutes, Rocks doesn’t overstay its welcome and scores highly on recommendability but it let down by repeat viewing with it being a tough watch and scores a very respectable 4.18 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Rocks? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
