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.
Danny - a lonely factory worker, intimidated by life - is battered and humiliated in front of his kids in a random act of violence. His already bleak existence sinks further into the abyss. On the verge of total breakdown he decides to fight back. He meets a group of night-club doormen who take him in and give him the confidence to stand his ground. As he is drawn deeper into their world he becomes embroiled with the local gangland boss, setting in motion a chain of events with shockingly brutal consequences. Written by

Have just seen this film on the recommendation of a friend. Great acting and looks superb when you consider this is a low budget Brit flick. It does exactly what it says on the poster, especially the soundtrack - truly cracking indeed, will definitely be buying the soundtrack album. I highly recommend it to everyone, and if you hurry, you'll get a free copy of Watch My Back, from which the film is adapted
great all round I'd say! I hope this film does really well - it
deserves too. Saw some of the press articles, which give you a sense of the work and love that has gone it to making it. I have also read some reviews which I found to be a little unfair - take it from me as your regular average 'joe' and not some jumped up pretentious film reviewer
this film is a must see!
