Girl gangs and revenge are the main themes of the latest film about London's lost youth

Sket review

Part of a new breed of films recreating London’s paranoid pulse with twitchy editing, urgent soundtracks and ugly tales of youngsters gone awry, Nirpal Bhogal’s debut, like Shank, puts location ahead of story, so the city comes to life in ways the characters never do.

Kayla (first-timer Aimee Kelly) is the Geordie-out-of-water who joins damaged Danielle’s (Emma Hartley-Miller) vicious girl gang in a bid to avenge her elder sister’s murder.

“Revenge is messy,” the girls are warned. Sadly, it’s not the only thing in a film that, for all its grit and attitude, lacks sufficient cred.
