I'm just back from seeing this and enjoyed it. Anyone else seen it ?
i enjoyed it, but felt the ending was slightly lacking, wouldnt mind seeing it again though, great acting also.
i saw it last week and thought it was a fantastic, if rather brutal, film.
the filming was incredibly well done i thought.
apparently some of Shane Meadows other stuff is worth checking out (A Room for Romeo Brass especially), anyone seen any of it?
dead mans shoes, which is brilliant.
and didn't seem like a proper conclusion but it was really good apart from that
which i guess is no bad thing.
i might watch that now, cheers
is definately worth seeing. Paddy Considine's 1st ever acting role and he's unbelievable in it. And Andrew Shim who plays Milky in This Is England is Romeo in it.
know whos cover of Please Please Please soundtracked the final scene?
I think it was one word, hope that helps
is from grimsby! i always see him at town matches and his brother was in my year at school.
a movie star from grimsby! woah!
i've not seen the film yet though.
Really, really liked it. It just gets more and more bleak as the story unfolds and the characters reveal themselves
brilliant acting. the little lad is amazing.
apparently he didn't go to stage school or anything. they just trawled local youth clubs looking for someone and he kept saying they had to pay him £10 to speak to him. so they liked him.
Saw Sunday, soundtrack ace as thought would be as like my Reggae and stuff, just felt the film couldn;t decide whether it was story of a lads difficulty fitting in or the skinhead movement
Well aware the original movement not necessary racist and the love of reggae etc and that the racist element you could find anywhere but the ending was a bit predictable. Also the montage of falklands footage was cool etc but a bit pretentious, ie what was the link to the story
Having said that enjoyed it and had some touching moments
in Nottingham showing it. I'm going to have a look now and persuade some friends to go.
found my entertainment for this weekend.
I thought it was absolutely outstanding. Really brutal and powerful. Great performances too. I really thought it was Shane Meadows' best film yet, even better than Dead Man's Shoes.
