Kids (1995) NC17 - 2½ Stars

Scary look at the some 13 year old boys from the Bronx and the hap hazard way they choose to spend their days. My mother would have been broke from buying soap to wash out my mouth if I talked like these boys at 13. A documentary of the young boys and girls lives.

Telly (Leo Fitzpatrick), and his little trouble making - drug using friends, keep score on how many times they can score with the girls. Telly brags how easy he gets laid and how he's only looking to do virgins. He, at his young age, claims there's nothing like it. Telly meets Jenny (Chloë Sevigny), and talks her into sleeping with him. Little does he know he has developed the AIDS virus and spreads it to Jenny. When she find out she has been infected, she tries to find him and tell him. But Telly has already moved on to his next target Darcy (Yakira Peguero). Will Jenny reach him time enough to save another virgin.
