CGiii Comment

A little rough around the edges...but, 'potential' is written all over this...

A possible feature could be wrought from the story...a rather exciting prospect!


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

King Ponce is a film about teenage masculinity and group acceptance. Robbo has a passion for ballroom dancing but, being the new kid at school, he doesn't want anyone to find out, especially not Gaz and his gang, with whom he's beginning to gain a coveted acceptance. Does Robbo have the confidence to stand up to the potential social consequences, or will he forever be labeled a 'ponce'?
