This is England
UK 2006, 101 min, drama
Set in the English Midlands in the early eighties, This Is England is based on the experiences of director Shane Meadows (Once Upon a Time in the Midlands). The film tells the story of Shaun (Tommy Turgoose), a troubled 12-year whose father was killed in the Falklands War. Shaun first finds companionship and protection among an older group of skinheads, but when the group falls under the sway of a racist leader named Combo (Stephen Graham), Shaun is drawn into a terrifying world of hatred and violence. Distinguished by the extraordinary performances of Turgoose and Graham and immaculate period detail, This Is England provides a disturbing and remarkably tender view of an important, turbulent period in modern history.
