July, 1983. School’s out and 12 year-old Shaun (Turgoose) falls in with an amiable gang of skinheads and mods. Then National Front nut Combo (Graham) arrives on the scene, and being a little skinhead suddenly becomes far more than a fashion statement...
Deeply impressive, as both a recreation of ’80s working-class England and an intimate tale of one childhood’s brutal end.
