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.
I have read a few of the comments already posted, and am amazed that no one has mentioned the fact that this movie if effectively telling the story of Holden Caulfield. I have heard in the past that many people have looked at turning The Catcher in The Rye into a movie, but have found it difficult as most of the book is spent inside Holden's head. Chapter 27, so named because The Catcher in The Rye has only 26 chapters, is telling the story of The Catcher in The Rye as well was the Story of Mark David Chapman who was apparently obsessed with the book. This is a dark film, and very few people will leave the cinema with a big smile on their face, but I certainly recommend seeing it, especially anyone who has read The Catcher in The Rye.
