This is England 2006

Set in 1983, this drama follows a lonely 11-year-old boy named Shaun, grieving over the recent death of his father who was killed fighting in the Falkland War. When he falls in with a gang of young skinheads, Shaun's pain and anger make him susceptible to carrying out the group's hateful agenda. Directed by Shane Meadows, this semiautobiographical film exposes a dark side of modern Britain not often seen in the movies.

This is England Movie Review by Movie Addict (1/16/2009)

Tired of getting picked on, and looking to belong, 11-year-old Shaun (Thomas Turgoose) joins a gang of skinheads that get their jollies doing damage to abandoned houses. Shaun is even getting it on with and older girl, Smell(Rosamund Hanson).
