Fours films from the critically-acclaimed British filmmaker Shane Meadows. Features Twentyfourseven (1997), A Room for Romeo Brass (1999), Dead Man's Shoes (2004) and This is England (2006).
In Twentyfourseven, Alan Darcy teaches bored kids on rundown estates by forming a boxing club. Acclaimed as the best British Film of the Year, it is full of genuine humour, courage and hope in the human spirit.
A Room for Romeo Brass is a coming-of-age story exploring the friendship between two 12 year-old boys. By using unknown and mostly untrained actors, Meadows' film comes across as both natural and fresh.
In Dead Man's Shoes, Paddy Considine plays an enigmatic anti-hero who returns to his hometown after years away. His arrival immediately provokes panic and paranoia in a group of drug dealers who soon regret a horrific mistake they made years earlier.
This is England (Shane Meadows, 2006) is Meadow's finest film yet. Building on his previous work, it is an intelligent and emotive look at a boy's life in the early 1980s. The film follows Shaun, superbly played by first-timer Thomas Turgoose, as he finds identity and solace with a group of older skinheads. All is well, until the racist Combo - played with both soul and menace by Stephen Graham - appears on the scene.
