This is England (2007)


I saw a special screening of Shane Meadow’s new film This is England (2007) a couple of weeks back and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Though I prefer his previous film Dead Man’s Shoes (2004), which I watched again this evening, it is still an excellent film that should be viewed by all. The lead performance by 15 year old Tommy Turgoose is wonderful. I normally cannot watch a child actor without cringing but Turgoose is frighteningly believable as Shaun a 12 year old boy who becomes part of the skinhead subculture of 1980s Britain which became infiltrated by the National Front. Make sure you see it!
