    Shane Meadows (Dead Man's Shoes, Once Upon a Time in the Midlands), next movie.

    This is England tells the story of Shaun, an 11-year-old kid growing up without a father in the north of England. Set during the summer holidays of 1983, we chart his rights of passage from shaggy haired ruffian grieveing the loss of his father, into a shaven headed thug who's anger and pain are embraced by the local skinhead fraternity and ultimately the National Front.. With a shell for a mother and no father to guide him, Shaun seems set for certain destruction.

    With the film being set in the early eighties, it is to be the first period film Shane has made. Through the story of the film, Shane will highlight the ironic fact that the Skinhead movement was initially born out of a love for black reggae music, which contradicts today's commonly held association of modern skinheads and racist affiliations
