Skate Kitchen (written and directed by Crystal Moselle) narratives a close-knit New York City female skateboarding clique and follows them through their lives of tricks, drama, and freedom, using mostly non-actors. While Skate Kitchen's premise and backstory are indeed "valid" and promising, the portrait ultimately falls short of successfully capturing these powerful women's stories. (DLH: 2.5/5)
