  • Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film Cosh Boy

    What a discovery! A relatively unknown/forgotten film about a young cockney lad who leads a gang of cosh boys who go round bashing up old ladies and streetwalkers for the contents of their imitation leather handbags. How enchanting that his working-class mother speaks with an upper-class accent! And when the anti-hero is on the verge of being arrested the cops give his stepfather 10 minutes to beat him up...
