We Didn't Start The Fire

I've been out of commission for a bit, but upon my return I was able to watch and enjoy the film, This Is England. Set in 1983, he film tells the story of a young boy who has recently lost his father in the war and who is constantly picked on by his peers. After being accepted by a group of older skinheads, Shaun - the main character - establishes his identity as a purist for England (not the United Kingdom) and his ideals as a racial purist.

After some terrible events, Shaun is left with decisions about his identity. But in the midst of everything, he's found a family of people who truly love him.

It's a great film, well shot and with a great soundtrack. I definitely recommend this film.
