Two 16-year-old friends vie for the attentions of a beautiful girl, who has just returned from her mother’s London home to live her lecherous father, by out bad-boying each other with drug-fuelled acts of violence, vandalism, and general laddishness, in this well crafted but generally unpleasant film, which feels like a pair of below average Skins episodes.
