Plot – Spoilers:
Set in California, Ken Park follows the lives of a bunch of skateboarders. Shawn is secretly fucking his girlfriend’s mother. Claude’s Dad doesn’t think he’s manly enough and picks on him whenever he’s in sight. Peaches lost her mother early on and obediently follows her bible thumping father’s diktats, but is kinky while with her boyfriend. Tate’s been brought up his grandparents but can’t stand them mostly for their age and gets off on autoerotic asphyxiation.

The adults in Ken Park seem on edge and you feel the tension every time they’re around each other or their kids. There are several twists from them and the teens, some of which you might see coming.

    Slice of life kind of film… I’m strangely reminded of a long lost friend who lives in Arkansas.

    Damn this was definitely a tough watch at some points especially as someone who dealt a level of abuse from my dad growing up. Have to say though, I really enjoyed this, sure it’s silly and goofy at points but there’s actually some seriously good shots here and there. The scene of Rhonda crying while talking to Shawn was great
