With its knockout lead perfs and taut if slightly familiar construction, this '80s-set dramedy about a skinhead gang reps Meadows' most fluently made film so far. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
One of the year's best movies...It's one of the simplest and best re-creations of downscale urban England during the gritty post-punk years ever put on screen, and it's both upsetting and very funny. Full Review

The script and direction are virtually flawless. Full Review

This Is England, set in the social dystopia of Margaret Thatcher's Great Britain, gives us something far more humane and complex than a culturally specific memoir about Doc Martens shoes, reggae music and mindless aggression. Full Review

Turgoose, in his first film role, is entirely convincing as the strong-willed but nave Shaun, and Graham is a genuine fright as the feral prototype of the violent skinhead culture on the horizon. Full Review
