DVD: Cherrybomb (15)

Rupert Grint is famous for playing Harry Potter's sidekick Ron Weasley in the film franchise.

In Cherrybomb, his third film role outside of wizard school, Grint is again the hapless foil to a more glamorous and dangerous boy, but in Belfast rather than Hogwarts. Grint is Malachy, a student with rich parents who spends his time hell-raising with his drug-dealing friend Luke (Robert Sheehan). A rift between the boys occurs when a new girl in town (Kimberley Nixon) makes it clear she fancies both. The anarchic denouement provides a welcome increase in pace to an otherwise slow film, reminiscent of a long episode of Skins minus the humour.
