Kroko

Film

Time Out says

Julia (aka Kroko) may bear a striking resemblance to Paris Hilton, but a combination of cool beauty and estate-bound deprivation have created a shoplifting sociopath who terrorises her mother and sullenly tolerates her hard and stupid boyfriend. When she ploughs down a cyclist with a ‘borrowed’ car, Kroko must do community service in a home for the mentally disabled, which complicates her outlook but doesn’t exactly soften it… Enders’s character study sidesteps all the usual pitfalls of the rehabilitation/redemption tale, offering a nuanced and unsentimental portrait of a girl who’s often repugnant, always recognisably human, and probably past all hope for a decent future.
