Young Ones, The aka Half Past 15 Years Old
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Lee Siu-Kei.

Definitely not the hilarious British comedy series of the same name, this film follows the lives of four near sixteen year old girls as they cause trouble in school and have troubles at home. One is molested by her uncle, another has to become a prostitute, there's a dying father and an evil stepmother in there as well. Cops and social workers with big hearts help them out. Will they learn their lessons and become good girls? The movie draws you in at first, but then becomes overly preachy and tired by the end. Seems to have been the pet project of pock-marked triad actor Lee Siu-Kei, who produced, wrote, and directed, but does not appear.

Rating: Not Recommended (Not Recommended)
