Don’t let your family get caught in the crossfire.
All my cuddle bunnies.
All my cuddle bunnies.
Set in the aftermath of the Rodney King trial, we follow a hard-working single mom with a soft spot for stray children. When the film begins, she already has eight children living in her house and will soon bring home another. Her neighbour is the local loose cannon, and the only white man in an area largely inhabited by African Americans, Latinos, and Koreans. With racial tensions running dangerously high, they would appear to be unlikely allies. Yet following the acquittal of four of the officers accused of beating Rodney King, these two must navigate the gathering chaos in the city to bring the kids home safely.

CommentsThe Movie, KINGS, follows the story of the brutal murder of African American student, Rodney King who was assaulted and battered to death with batons by white policemen in a case of police brutality that happened in the Lower East Side of LA back in the early 1990's. Riots and civil unrest erupts in the small town, when the four policemen are acquitted of all charges sparking the violent protests, looting, vandalism and further acts of police brutality and racial intolerance in this small town. THEMES are complex and mature themes of moral degeneration, under-age drinking, juvenile delinquency, family, love, friendship, relationships, shoplifting, poverty, foster care, survival, life in the hood (Ghetto), being falsely accused, dysfunctional families, racial tensions, injustice towards Black people, neighbourly love, unrest, rioting, disorderly conduct, racial intolerance, police brutality, compassion, community, foster care, social awareness and providing a home for the homeless. There is a sustained sense of threat and menace due to dark themes highlighting realistic issues of racial prejudice and social injustice. Themes are likely to cause psychological, emotional and moral harm and content would be disturbing, distressing, upsetting and confusing for children under 16 years as there are no positive resolutions or reconciliation, the movie ends with Millie realizing that one of the children she cared for, had died in the riots and mourning his death.
