Catch Up


Rae, the overweight teen with an unfortunate penchant for self-harming, believes all her dreams have come true when Archie asks her out on a date. Alas, it goes horribly, inevitably awry and ends in an agonising shower scene that made this viewer yelp. But the “blob with a gob” – which is how Rae describes herself to her psychiatrist – isn’t one to wallow in self-loathing for long…

This is as uplifting as it is moving, although the banter and gimmicks won’t be to everybody’s taste.


Rae is determined to catch up with the rest of the gang in terms of her sexual experiences, but is worried her weight will prevent her getting a boyfriend. However, things look up when one of the boys asks her on a date. Comedy based on the diaries of 16-year-old Rae Earl, starring Sharon Rooney.
