Playing as part of the BFI's Working Class Heroes season in September, this is the film that inspired three TV series and made stars of many of its actors. This Is England is a masterpiece of working-class storytelling. Set in 1983, the story belongs to 12-year-old Shaun (Turgoose), who finds 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-spoon cafes and at rowdy house parties.
