1983 - the year of the Royal Wedding, Rubik Cubes, and Margaret Thatcher in her post-Falklands prime. Growing up in a grim coastal town with no mates, 12 year-old Shaun is adopted by a group of friendly skinheads who soon introduce him to the latest fashions, girls and parties. Then National Front nutter Combo returns and things get distinctly leery. Fantastically performed and beautifully set (with the styles and mood of Thatcher's Britain captured to a T), this is the best British movie in years.

Winner of the Best British Film BAFTA
