A classic British indie film that’s heartfelt and entertaining. Absolutely worth a watch if you are a film buff.
Saw this a long time ago and it moved me before I knew about street violence and the reality of running with a bad crowd. Brave. Bold. Real
Fantastic film. Bleak, engaging and punishing.
A beautiful drama that feels way too real to be scripted. Gorgeous cinematography and some of the best acting I have ever seen.
A fine example of British indie cinema - social realism at its very finest. Darkly humorous and gritty - one to watch.
A bleak, but entirely captivating note on the British working class. Some excellent performances turned in.
I loved the movie. I didn't like the ending though, maybe cause I didn't like the fact that the movie ended.
Discomforting, affecting movie that will stay with you. It's not a nice feeling after watching this but that's what the film intends
Stick on your boots and braces and wear a mean face for this one
An excellent tale of the dark underbelly of peer pressure plus it has a brilliant performance from the underrated Stephen graham
What a harrowing movie this is, with great performances from all involved. It feels so organic, which makes it more sad. An important movie!
This film depicts an era with great honesty and every actor delivers an amazing performance. You'll laugh and you'll cry ... A must see
The acting is spot on. In my top 10 films of all time. Shows raw aspects of humanity, all of which I find important to acknowledge.
This film shows how far humans (particularly teenagers) will go to feel accepted. It’s gut wrenching.
A boys story of the working class and his rebellion.
Absolute classic, especially if you were brought up in England you can really understand, sympathise and relate to the roots of this film.
Dark, yet heartwarming look at 80’s British subculture that tackles themes of growing up and racism excellently.
One of my favourite movies. The way it addresses themes of youth indoctrination is simply amazing
Touching and great character development.
Interesting look into a scene that has not been looked into much.
