Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 08/01/2003
"...A young Ray Winstone gives a troubling, terrifying performance....Bloody effective..."
Uncut - 08/01/2001
"A grim, realistic portrayal of life inside a borstal.....A true classic."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2005
"Clarke's characteristic humanism is evident..."
Uncut - 01/01/2006
Ranked #11 in Uncut's Best DVDs Of 2005 -- "[W]ith a liberal message hidden behind a surface harsh enough to scrape your eyes."
Los Angeles Times - 07/06/2017
"A ferocious exposé of life in Britain’s notorious borstals, or youth detention centers....It tells it with scalding wit and coolly riveting style, in the visual equivalent of spare, brilliant prose that occasionally bleeds into poetry."

Product Description:

Daniels, of QUADROPHENIA fame, stars in this controversial story about brutality and violence in a modern prison for youthful offenders. The film ends with a climactic riot, protesting a "system" that brutalizes the keepers and the caged alike.
