Broadsheet Trailer Park: This Is England ’90

What you may need to know:

1. Writer/director Shane Meadows serves up one last slice of bittersweet nostalgia.

2. Woody (Joe Gilgun), Lol (Vicky McClure) and the gang embrace baggy.

3. It looks like Combo (Stephen Graham) is out of prison. I’d wager that he won’t be on board with the whole “Second Summer of Love” thing.

4. If you haven’t seen the movie or the two mini-series, then you have approximately eight hours’ worth of catching up to do. But what an eight hours.

5. Meadows originally planned to shoot these final four episodes back in 2012, but went off to do his Stone Roses documentary instead.

6. Made of Stone (2013) didn’t really turn out as expected. Meadows definitely wore his fan hat to that party.

7. Broadsheet prognosis: There may be trouble ahead.

Release Date: September 7  (TBC).

  1. Clampers Outside!

    True, Made of Stone didn’t do a big delve into the band, those talked to death battles with the labels… that was a good thing. It was a damn joy to watch :)

    Look forward to this.

    Brilliant movie and series. Something very special about the ensemble acting and general vibe. Meadows’ Dead Man’s Shoes is one of the greatest movies ever made.
