It's 1983, and unsupervised, beleaguered Shaun (Thomas Turgoose) is missing his soldier dad, who died in the Falklands war an unspecified amount of time prior. So when an older boy at school makes a crack about his father, Shaun takes it upon himself to fight the kid, getting both of them into trouble and inciting the events that make up "The Is England," Shane Meadows' semi-autobiographical acco... read more

This Is England is director Shane Meadows semi- autobiographical exposé of skinhead culture and life growing up in Thatcher's council estate Britain.

My anticipation for this film was immeasurable, to the extent that I had to visit my local cinema and beg that they showed the film. My begging eventually paid off and I got exactly what I expected.

Like Meadows previ... read more

I'd heard nothing but rave reviews about the film, but I must say I felt slightly disappointed after watching it.

My main gripe was the fact that nothing seemed to be going on in the middle of the film. It follows a 12 year old boy as he deals with the death of his father fighting in the Falklands war. Becoming ever more frustrated by school and the people who bully him he finds so... read more

A very good movie

“Since I kept hearing good things about Shane Meadows (supposedly, he is one of the best British directors at work nowadays), I was definitely eager to check his work. I got lucky to start with one of his best movies and I was not disappointed. Indeed, the guy is really talented. He managed to set his movie in a specific historical time and place (England in the 80’s) but still creating some fascinating characters to watch. Basically, it shows how dreary the life was for some people in England during that time (is it really any better nowadays? Ok, that’s another debate…) and how slowly some of them moved towards the National Front and their extreme right wing ideas. This movie displayed also an interesting notion which I wasn’t aware of about the skinheads. Indeed, apparently, the ” read more

A Journey Into Skinhead Culture

“It's 1983, and unsupervised, beleaguered Shaun (Thomas Turgoose) is missing his soldier dad, who died in the Falklands war an unspecified amount of time prior. So when an older boy at school makes a crack about his father, Shaun takes it upon himself to fight the kid, getting both of them into trouble and inciting the events that make up "The Is England," Shane Meadows' semi-autobiographical account of the nuances and temptations of skinhead culture.

Shaun is twelve, high-spirited and foul-mouthed, traits that exasperate his single mother Cynthia (Jo Hartley.) He is damaged and distrustful when he meets Woody (Joseph Gilgun,) a tattooed teenager who runs his own little gang in their coastal town. Contrary to what you might infer, Woody is not the antagonist of the story.

“Many other filmmakers dared to portray their own countries' neo-nazi/skinhead/ultra-nationalist subculture, such as Geoffrey Wright with Romper Stomper, Alan Clarke's Made In Britain, or Tony Kaye's American History X, to name some examples. Obviously I wasn't much impressed by the theme. It wasn't new. But what the others kind of fail to deliver to the audience, this one does it quite well. I'm talking about the human side of the characters. We see that skinheads, in this case, are not just simple haters and racist personas, but that those convictions always have a background, and that they don't become that way just because they felt like it. In his case, the background may be a broken home (Combo), the loss of a role model (Shaun) or even the desire to be respected somehow when that isn” read more
