Film Review: Cherrybomb

Rating:

Directed by Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn, Cherrybomb was released in 2010 and stars Rupert Grint (Harry Potter franchise) and Robert Sheehan (Misfits) as best friends Malachy and Luke over a wild weekend of drink, drugs and violence as the two compete to win over the new girl in town, Michelle (Kimberley Nixon).

The story follows a Skins-esque type plot as Michelle takes the place of Effy, persuading the boys to out-do each other in bad behaviour to win the prize of ‘getting to know her better.’ Their love triangle forms as the competition begins. But what starts out as just a game turns deadly serious. The opening scene introduces Malachy and Luke being questioned by the police over a murder charge, flashing back three days before to retell the story, beginning when the two first meet Michelle as the boss’ (James Nesbitt) daughter.
