Storyline

Shattered by the experience of war ex-soldier Darren finds himself back in England and disenfranchised by a society struggling to find an identity. His best friend Paul has moved away to university while his other friend Gary has joined the extremist ranks of the far right National Defence League.

Quotes

Gary: I remember that day. I was nine. Or maybe eight. I remember watching them fall, wondering what they must have been thinking. "It's alright, it's alright. So far, so good." That hope that everything's okay while you fall into oblivion. And I wondered if anything like that could ever happen here."

10/10 Brilliant !!! A must see
21 December 2016 | by esi-55387See all my reviews

Cracking movie, it was quite similar to,This is England, really enjoyable movie and it touches on a taboo subject, which is affecting modern society, that is the difficulty soldiers face and and the issues they experience trying to adjust to living as a normal member of society, after the horrors of war and the constant paranoia that haunts them. Overall, the movie was action packed and full of suspense. Also, i really enjoyed the twist, which i must say was a pleasant surprise and it had scratching my head afterwards.It's one of them movies you have to watch twice to really understand especially after the twist. It's definitely worth a watch, one of the best independent movies i have watched in quite a while.
