This is England is a masterpiece of working class storytelling. Set in 1983, the story belongs to 12 year old Shaun (Thomas Turgoose), finding a sense of belonging with a group of local skinheads. Turgoose and co-stars including Vicky McClure light up a film where great human drama is played out in greasy spoons and at rowdy house parties.
