A story about a troubled boy growing up in England, set in 1983. He comes across a few skinheads on his way home from school, after a fight. They become his new best friends even like family. Based on experiences of director Shane Meadows.
A young and impatient stockbroker is willing to do anything to get to the top, including trading on illegal inside information taken through a ruthless and greedy corporate raider who takes the youth under his wing.
The 25th Hour depicts the last day of freedom for a young man before he begins serving a seven-year jail term for drug dealing. Prowling through the city until dawn with his two close male friends and his girlfriend, he is forced to re-examine his life and how he got himself into his predicament, which leads to a shocking, disturbing finale.

This movie is excellent. Not a big fan of Spike Lee, but was interested in seeing his first "white" movie. Not racist, but that is how i saw it. His first movie that was with mostly white actors. I loved the movie. I have much more respect for Mr. Lee. I love the f-uc you scene. That is the best part of the movie. The theme of him escaping from this torture that he is about to go through also moved me. Very sad, but very real and moving movie. Drug laws in this country are far too restrictive and they ruin (usually minorities') lives. Great job, Spike Lee!! I loved Barry Pepper as the Stock Broker. I loved Ed Norton. He is always great, and this performance is no different..
