Teenage Kicks

1h 35m Drama, Australia, Australian 2016

The scars of our youth shape the adults we become.

For seventeen year-old Miklós Varga (Miles Szanto, Love My Way), life is less about coming-of-age, and more about seizing the moment. With ambitious plans to escape his strict migrant family and run away with his best friend Dan (Daniel Webber, 11.22.63) Mik yearns for personal fulfilment in an otherwise stifling landscape. But his plans are suddenly crushed by the accidental death of his older brother Tomi. Only Mik knows the truth behind the tragedy of his brother’s death and it is eating him up inside-out, sending him on an intense collision course with destiny. Coming to terms, he is suddenly forced to navigate his guilt and explosive sexuality to find the man he can become.

A powerful human drama in the Aussie tradition of Head-On and Barracuda, Teenage Kicks captures the restlessness and emotional intensity of adolescence in the modern world.
