Adulthood 2008 15

99 mins United Kingdom Director. Noel Clarke

After being released from prison following a murder charge, Sam Peel (Noel Clarke) attempts to restart his life and win back the trust of those he let down during his teenage years of crime and violence. But making amends doesn’t come so easy, as he finds himself the target for a new generation of bad boys.

The sequel to Kidulthood and one of a series of films set about the struggles of West London life by writer-producer-star Noel Clarke, Adulthood is a searingly authentic inner-city thriller; famous upon its release for out-grossing the latest Indiana Jones instalment on its opening weekend.
