Sarah Gavron's drama comes to UK cinemas in April.





Suffragette's Sarah Gavron directs this drama set in the streets of modern London. Newcomer Bukky Bakray plays 'Rocks', a teenager forced to fend for herself and her young brother (D’angelou Osei Kissiedu) when they are abandoned by their mother.

Rocks is in UK cinemas April 10th.

Check out the trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

Rocks (15) is a teenage girl with big dreams for the future, loyal fun friends and an adoring, though mischievous, little brother Emmanuel (7). Rocks enjoys school (as much as any teenager does) and lives a full vibrant life in East London with her team of London-centric female best friends. Rocks’ world is turned upside down when she returns from school to find her mum gone, having left some cash and a note offering little explanation except that she is sorry. Determined to stick with her brother and avoid being taken into care against all odds, Rocks leaves her home and hides in pockets of East London. As each day becomes tougher and her secret harder to hide, Rocks starts to push away those who love her and her friendship group begins to fracture. When the authorities finally catch up with her, there is really only one source of support for her to turn to: her friends. A film about the joy, resilience and spirit of girlhood.
