Rocks | UK | 2019 | Dir. Sarah Gavron | 12A | 93 min | IDMb 7.4

Shola or Rocks, as she's known, lives in a London council flat with her younger brother Emmanuel and their single mother. Mum is busy and stressed, leaving Rocks to spend all her free time with school friends. One day, she comes home to find her life radically altered: she is suddenly on her own with a child to take care of. Gavron could easily have steered Rocks into miserabilism, but delivers instead a surprising portrait of resilience. Rocks is mercurial, impulsive, and deeply sensitive - not unusual for her age, she sometimes makes desperately poor decisions, for what look to her like good reasons. When her closest friend Sumaya tries to help, Rocks doesn't know how to accept it, blinded by Sumaya's two-parent household and relative comfort. BAFTA winning British Film.

Entry is free for HFS Members.

Tickets for non-members cost £6 each (Under 25's £3). These can be purchased online here or will be available on the door (contactless payments only please, we are not taking cash this season). A small processing fee will be applied to all tickets.

Please note that doors open at 7pm but the film will start at 7.30pm. All seating is unreserved so grab a seat wherever you like. Parking is free after 6pm for all Odeon cinema-goers but you MUST display a voucher obtained from the Odeon lobby.

Film Club
There will be a film club discussion (with refreshments provided) after this film. Please just linger in the upstairs lobby outside of screen 2 and we will hopefully find seating for us all to sit down and chat about the movie. Don't be shy, you can sit and listen or contribute as much as you like. Dave Ince will facilitate.
