An independent film highlighting the misadventures of a group of teenagers in mid-90s New York City. This seemingly innocent title show the juxtaposition of teenage rebellion alongside controversial behavior including sex, drugs, and all-night parties. With sex being a central theme, the film gives both stereotypical male and female perspectives on the subject. Both vantage points conflict with each other, yet also collide in many ways. Kids is a film that illustrates inner-city youth without censorship in an era plagued by sexually transmitted diseases and drugs. The reality of what is often deemed as typical teenage behavior is inspected in such a way to expose the harsh truths many coming-of-age films dare not explore.
