This Is England R2 Ws (Uk Import) - Meadows, Shane
Releasedatum: 3 september 2007
Shane Meadows' gritty portrait of teenage urban life in Thatcher's Britain of the early '80s. With schools breaking up for the summer, 12-year-old Shaun (Thomas Turgoose) makes his way home after a fight.
Living at home with his mum in a rundown coastal town, his dad killed in the Falklands, Shaun spends a lot of time on his own and dreads the long summer break. Expecting the worst when he runs into a group of skinheads, Shaun's surprised when they turn out to be friendly and adopt him as one of their own.
Suddenly the summer feels a whole lot better as Shaun discovers girls, parties, braces and an identity. But the good times are threatened with the appearance of Combo (Stephen Graham), an older, in-your-face racist, just released from prison, who leads the group down a darker, violent road.
