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.
