    Will Poulter Graduates From The School of Comedy

    Having watched Kids In Love last night, and quite enjoyed it, I thought
    I would log onto IMDb and see what others thought of it. But nobody
    else had seen fit to review it. Nobody. Not a single review. And I
    thought that was rather unfair, so here I go.

    It’s not bad. The acting is solid, the script is pretty good and the
    characters, whilst not entirely likable, are developed reasonably well.
    So far, so-so. However, it is Will Poulter as the protagonist, Jack,
    that elevates the movie above the mediocre. He really is a credible
    actor these days, and I really enjoyed his performance in Kids In Love.

    I guess, at its heart, Kids is basically a coming of age movie, but it
    has a lot of heart, and I genuinely cared that things would work out
    for Jack. However, I am not so sure about Alma Jadorowsky as the
    ethereal Evelyn. Yes, she is attractive, but I did not feel that she
    exuded the ”je ne sais quoi” (it’s okay, Evelyn is French) that the
    script demanded.

    That said, the London locations are fun, and although things became a
    little predictable in the last twenty minutes (as these sorts of films
    generally do) I must confess that I was left with a smile on my face.

    Undemanding, but enjoyable.

    A film that felt made for the middle class youth who live off their parents money

    I watched this because I am big fan of Will Poulter, an extremely
    naturally gifted actor & he so he is here but struggles with the
    material he is given.

    Poulter plays Jack, born of middle class Nottinghill parents who plan
    for him to take an internship with a friends law firm as soon as he is
    back from taking a gap year of travelling with his friend Tom. Jack
    meets Evelyn, a French girl visiting London, whom for reasons unknown
    strings Jack along even though she has an on/off boyfriend who can only
    be some sort of pimp / drug dealer though what he does is never clearly
    explained. Through meeting her he goes clubbing to secret hedonistic
    places where young posh kids go, who don’t work, have threesomes and do
    drugs. It’s all very pastel colours and warm tones. Jack has an
    interest in old school photography, befriends some sisters who seem to
    own a ‘come and go as you please’ mansion while their parents are away
    and meets an assortment of odd other characters. Some arguments are had
    and some friendships are tested and that’s about it really. The script
    is almost entirely devoid of any real drama save for a couple of heated
    rows with the parents and his best friend. Coming of age dramas and
    films about first young loves can be engaging but sadly this film isn’t
    in that category. It’s only real saving grace is Poulter who plays the
    stumbling Jack with an appropriate level of blind confusion. Adequate
    casting in terms of the parents is provided by stalwart actors such as
    Pip Torrens and Geraldine Sommerville, but the rest of the cast find it
    hard to make their mark. The script lacked any real characterisation
    (Perhaps these kids are just that bland, and that was the point?) and I
    just really wasn’t interested in the petty dilemmas of these spoilt
    rich kids. At the end of the films running time I felt I barely knew
    any of the characters any better than I did when the film had started
    apart from Jack, whose own journey seems to have taken him no where.
    Perhaps that was the point of the story, that they were all so vacuous
    that Jack was better off where he had started, than with meeting them
    at all. Be that as it may, it did make the film somewhat pointless.

    It says much about a film where the most memorable moment is a scene
    with a guy who sits on the sofa and says nothing.

    What was the point of this film?

    Too vacuous

    What better contrast to those urban gritty dramas about young Londoners
    set in the tower blocks than Kids in Love which is about posh young
    Londoners living in Notting Hill or similar.

    Will Poulter plays college student Jack taking a gap year, do some work
    and earn money to travel to south America with his friends.

    Like a lot of teenagers he is unsure of what he wants to do with his
    life but he certainly does not want to do an internship in a law firm
    that his father has arranged.

    What he does engage in is a bohemian lifestyle partying in London,
    taking drugs and having sex and falling out with his friends, because
    now he does not want to go travelling. This turn of events is caused by
    meeting French free spirited artist Evelyn (Alma Jodorowsky) who lives
    in a rundown Hackney townhouse with other alternative arty types such
    as Viola (Cara Delevingne) and Evelyn also has an on/off boyfriend who
    also might be a drug dealer.

    Refreshing as it might be to see a different perspective of Londoners
    (the white middle class type.) There is little drama and little that
    happens in this coming of age tale where Jack’s loyalties with his
    friends are tested. A good natural performance from Will Poulter is the
    only recommendation in this empty story.
