This Is England
Source: Catholic News Service
Interesting semiautobiographical story by writer-director Shane Meadows about the England of a quarter-century ago, as a lonely 12-year-old boy (Thomas Turgoose) who lives with his widowed mother after his father has died in the Falklands War, joins a group of skinheads to have a sense of belonging, and comes under the tutelage of a bigoted ex-con (Stephen Graham). The resulting film is a document of hope that one need not be trapped forever in one's past. Menacing violence, graphic war footage and racist slurs. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
