It's 1983, 12-year-old Shaun is an isolated lad growing up in a grim coastal town, whose father has died fighting in the Falklands war. He finds fresh males role models when those in the local skinhead scene take him in. Here he meets Combo, an older, racist skinhead who has recently got out of prison. As Combo's gang harass the local ethnic minorities, the course is set for a rite of passage that will hurl Shaun from innocence to experience. (IFC Films)
I saw this movie last night and it was excellent, really fucking ballsy. It's only playing in a handful of theaters across the country now, but it's really worth tracking down. Anyone who grew up listening to punk rock, early 80's British ska, and realizes not all skinheads are racists will want to see it.

Check out the trailer here.
