    A drama story in which boy becomes friends with a gang of skinheads. Friends soon become like family, and relationships are pushed to the limit when a racist ex-convict returns, but Shaun, unfortunately, finds in him a father figure. It is a complicated and tough movie, and although not without its controversies, it is interesting to see the emotional and honest development of a young character discovering racism, nationalist views and violence and then realizing nothing good ever comes from that.

    Wow, so realistic, incredibly joyful and then incredibly painful, then a little bit of hope again. An amazing look into the perspective of racist skinheads than can make you actually empathize with them without agreeing with them. Shows how racism and violence come from a place of pain, fear, and "emasculation." Be warned, there is some definite pedophilia in here between the main character and an older girl, it's uncomfortable to watch.

    Splendid cinematography and great music to give you the 80s feeling necessary, characters to fall in love with but a bit of a shallow look on an ideological level.
