Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Shane Meadows. United Kingdom. 2008, 70 mins. 35mm. With Thomas Turgoose, Piotr Jagiello, Elisa Lasowski. The director (Shane Meadows) and star (Thomas Turgoose) of This is England created this wry and captivating coming-of-age tale about two teens, new to London, who forge an unlikely friendship during a hot summer. Marek lets homeless Tomo move into his room, and the pair forms a hilarious bond as they work odd jobs for an eccentric neighbor and compete for the attention of a beautiful young French waitress. Meadows “explores the comic and tragic absurdities of small-town life in a populist, invigorating fashion, moving with swagger and ease from laughs to tears and back again” (Time Out New York). Preceded by So You’ve Grown Attached (Dir. Kate Tsang, U.S., 2014, 15 mins.)
