Kids (1995)



AKA:
Directed by: Larry Clark

Runtime: 01:31:31

Plot – Spoilers:
Kids follows a day in the lives of Telly and Casper and their friends. Telly considers himself a virgin specialist and enjoys the conquest. He’s charming and his funny quips make him popular on the scene. Casper, his constant companion, admires Telly’s sexual exploits but is really more interested in staying high. Jennie lost her virginity to Telly and hasn’t been as sexually active since. Her friend Ruby on the other hand has, and convinces her to join her for an STD test.

Kids stunningly captures the emptiness, sexuality and violence of a certain phase and is all the more remarkable for its use of untrained actors.

Random Trivia (Massive Spoilers):
In fact, so convincing is the acting that people mistook it for a documentary and would abuse Leo Fitzpatrick (who played Telly) as they thought he was still out there spreading the disease.
