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

A vision of skinhead movement, and the possibility of patriotism in an England where neo liberalism destroyed industry and employment.

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

1001 Movies ... my own version (2000's) (120 movies items)

" Notes: Shane Meadows managed to set his movie in a specific historical time and place (England in the 80’s) and he also managed to create 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?) 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 about those skinheads. Indee"

" Date: 3/7/2020 Viewed: Youtube First viewing Note: I remember hearing about this movie when it came out back in 2006, but never saw it until now. I'm glad that I saw this movie because I really enjoy it. I thought this movie was well-directed, acted, and very well-paced. The movie went by quickly in a good way because the story kept me entertained. I like how all the characters in this movie feel very realistic because they feel like the characters that you would know in real life. Thomas Tu"

Non racist skinhead (4 movies items)

" Shane Meadows’ semi-autobiographical account of growing up in the eighties and falling in with a skinhead gang that eventually gets taken over by nationalists and white supremacists is a bleak film, completely without any semblance of nostalgia. Thomas Turgoose, in his first acting role, is the star of the show as the troubled Shaun, a bullied and fatherless adolescent who finds a new family in the skinhead gang. He’s conflicted when the group splits over politics and falls for the sensati"
