When a movie about urban youth is located in south London, it is too often a bleak tale about teen alienation, drugs and violence. It's refreshing, then, that this inspiring film has something positive to say about youngsters from the area. The focus here is on a multiracial group of 17 young people as they workshop Shakespeare's Tempest in and around their home patch. Switching between performance and rehearsal, the documentary - which is mercifully free of explanatory narration - allows the teenagers to provide the commentary on their lives, their interest in drama and their hopes for the future. Their down-to-earth insights into the play and its contemporary relevance are invigorating and provide a much-needed reminder that investment in the young remains as important now as it's ever been. Government ministers take note.
