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.
Oliver Refson might not be a known entity yet. But take note of his name because he will be soon. If the comedy short "The Hardest Part" is an example of what this young director is capable of then it will be exciting to see what he has up his sleeve next. "The Hardest Part" is a brilliant and touching story about an aging actor who thinks his chance to be part of the new wave of cinema has finally arrived in the form of a new Euro-trash action flick (I will not name any English films by name but let's just say it's pretty obvious what and who Refson is spoofing). Famed for his role as the quiet "Victor the butler" on an English TV program many years earlier, the main character seeks to regain some dignity and notoriety for something other than his famed role and prepares enthusiastically for his upcoming audition for the title role of the mob boss. Things, of course, are not what they seem and Victor soon finds himself in an awkward and undignified situation yet again. It's a beautifully told story with a heart and soul. If you can find this film anywhere, it's worth seeing.
