This is England

This is England

Over the course of the summer holiday Shaun finds fresh male role models when those in the local skinhead scene take him in. With his new friends he discovers a world of parties, first love and the joys of Dr Martens boots. This is England is a look back at the early eighties, of British working-class life through the eyes of young Shaun and his new gang, and it deals with the bitterness of outside influences such as racism and xenophobia, mass unemployment and the fallout of the Falklands War; Thatcher’s Britain.
