The teenage criminal Eric Love seems street-smart enough to navigate the corruption of the British prison system. But after his violent streak sends him to an adult prison, Eric comes face to face with Nev, a career criminal, and his long-lost father.

Vores mening

Before landing an Oscar nomination for Hell or High Water, director David Mackenzie exploded on to the scene with this brutal, blistering British drama—both a solid and steadfast prison thriller and nuanced psychological portrait of two men, a taut tête-à-tête led by two outstanding performances.

The truth is that ascribing Starred Up’s success to “palatability” would be a disservice to the movie, which, in many ways, is both more radically unsentimental and more idealistic than Mackenzie’s earlier work.

All of Mackenzie’s characters in Young Adam and Asylum andMister Foe are prisoners in one way or another, and his latest is a family drama and a love story dressed in penitentiary grays, a tale about people slamming into each other and into their own limitations, a chain of alliances brutally damaged and tentatively mended. Each punch is felt deeply.

Compelling for its relentless cycle of violence hitched to Mackenzie’s agile shooting style and performances that are ably up to the task, Starred Up earns its nasty streak, but ultimately succumbs to an almost extravagant level of peripety—something that a little discipline can’t ultimately correct.
