Thomas Turgoose appeared two years later in Somers Town, also by Shane Meadows and also very good.

Unfortunately, like most movies dealing with these sorts of issues, the film never really bothers to explore the actual problems and tensions underlying nationalism and nativism, but just sort of expects you to reject them out of hand like the protagonist.

An enjoyable movie covering English life under Thatcher. I was worried about our protagonist and the road he was going down until the very end.
