IDEAL viewing conditions for this: saw it with my sister in an otherwise empty theatre. The first teen film I've seen for ages that wasn't trying to be a throwback to similar films from the 80s or 90s or noughties. It felt completely of the moment, and not even in ways I always liked or understood, bit it was very assured and refreshing. We both had a cracking time and a bit of a cry.
Was expecting to enjoy this but I was pretty dissapointed. Was heartfelt and the scenes showing the tensions in the main characters family were good, but the rest was way too cheesy and I cringed a lot. I also flat out refuse to believe that any school in 1980s Luton had a school radio station.
