A troubled teen must adapt to the harsh hierarchy of a youth detention centre and come to terms with his sense of self in Darko Štante’s debut feature, based on his own experiences working with youths in a correctional facility. A hard-hitting emotional portrayal of teenage angst and fragile burgeoning masculinity, Consequences takes an unflinching look at the raw impulses of adolescence and the insecurity that lies beneath, and pulsates with authenticity and muscular emotionality, never sinking into the cliché trappings of at-risk youth films. (Dimitri Eipides, Toronto International Film Festival)
