    a stylish and cool new film by debutant director Lindy Heymann...creates plenty of bold, cinematic moment, and one of the girls, Kerrie Hayes, is wonderful to watch, a striking new face. Jason Solomons
    The Observer

    As a study of the mirage of celebrity and the emptiness of fanaticism, Kicks is frank, insightful and hard-hitting
    Eye for Film

    elfin Hayes and the more carnal Burley have their own unique presences and consistently impress. Heymann's helming is quietly assured; her strong use of music suggests her background in musicvideos has paid dividends. Variety
