Honeytrap Review

Image for Honeytrap

Fifteen-year-old Trinidadian Layla (Sula) finds Brixton has less to offer her than she'd dreamed. Then gets caught up in gangs and power struggles.

★★★★★

Jessica Sula impresses as the Trinidadian teen caught up in a Brixton gang feud, but melodramatic plotting and gauche characterisation undermine this fact-based exposé of the limited opportunities facing inner-city girls with inflated expectations but little domestic stability.

Despite a strong central performance this is undermined somewhat by melodramatic plotting and gauche characterisation.
