★★★★★
- Beth Webb, Empire Magazine

“Rocks is a film about youthful potential and the miracle of watching it flower in unpropitious soil. It's a pleasure to behold.”
★★★★
- Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

"Rocks is a bona fide heartbreaker - a film that never, for one second, feels anything less than real."
★★★★
- Emma Simmonds, Radio Times

“The resulting performances - lively, giddy and authentic - define the movie, while the lovely upbeat ending sweetens an otherwise stinging social critique.”
★★★★
- Kevin Maher, The Times

“The whole movie has the... sense of deftly controlled chaos, powered not by screenwritten speeches but the unpredictable, unmistakable rhythm of real life.”
★★★★
- Danny Leigh, Financial Times


After her stunning debut Brick Lane, followed by 2015’s award-winning Suffragette, Sarah Gavron returns behind the camera for her anticipated third feature, reuniting with BAFTA-nominated producer Faye Ward (Stan & OllieWild Rose).

15-year-old Rocks fears that she and her little brother Emmanuel will be taken into care and forced apart if anyone finds out that their mother has left them to fend for themselves. Against all odds, and with the help of her loyal friends, she evades the authorities and navigates the most defining days of her young life.

Rocks is an astounding film about resilience, joy, and the spirit of girlhood.
