Sarah Gavron’s new film, Rocks, will be getting a UK cinema release next year.

The new film from director Sarah Gavron (who previously helmed Suffragette and Brick Lane), Rocks, earned rave reviews when it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and London Film Festival back in the autumn. And now we know when the rest of us can get to see it.

Altitude, that’s releasing the movie has announced a UK release of April 10th 2020 for the fllm.

The film is penned by Theresa Ikoka and Claire Wilson, with a cast featuring Bukky Bakray, Kosar Ali, Shaneigha-Monik Greyson, Ruby Stokes, Tawheda Begum, Anastasia Dymitrow and Afi Okaidja.

And whilst we don’t have a trailer as of yet, we do have an official synopsis. It reads:

The film follows teenager Rocks (Bukky Bakray) who fears that she and her little brother Emmanuel (D’angelou Osei Kissiedu) will be forced apart if anyone finds out they are living alone. With the help of her friends, she evades the authorities and navigates the most defining days of her life. A film about the joy, resilience and spirit of girlhood.

Definitely one to mark on the calendar for next year. More closer to its release.
