Further details

Liam is on a date for the first time since his all-too-recent breakup with Jess. With a bit of help from an 'icebreaker' app, everything seems to be going well. But when his date asks Liam about the last time he felt completely happy, he's thrust back into memories of his adolescence.

Leeds, early noughties: GCSE results day and Liam is secretly overjoyed to have nailed his exams and bested his friends academically. But when thoughts turn to that evening's big night out in Leeds City Centre, a new sort of competition rears its ugly head.

Ladhood review

It all reeks of adolescent hormones and acrid aftershave, and makes for fairly unpleasant viewing.

Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail, 17th August 2021

Ladhood review

The stultifying reality of a suburban adolescence is evoked in this Leeds-based comedy to brilliantly cruel effect.

Ed Power, The Telegraph, 15th August 2021
