    The thing about representation in fiction is that it’s absolutely fine if your depiction of female, BAME and working-class lives isn’t something a white middle-class male will totally relate to. The three stars I’ve given Rocks is only reflective of my personal strange response to it - I struggled to connect with it and was also very moved - but it’s a self-evidently strong film that’s connecting with a lot of people.
