Synopsis

Set in 1970s Glasgow, this film tells the story of a shy and intelligent young boy who, through a series of circumstances, turns into a NED—a non-educated delinquent. Attending a new school, he becomes increasingly violent and aggressive, all the while searching for a way out.

Our take

Grizzled Scottish actor Peter Mullan, last seen on MUBI in My Name is Joe, is also a remarkably sensitive director. A characteristically tough look at teen delinquency, Neds is like the 400 Blows mold given a sudden headbutt. Winner of two Scottish BAFTAs, for direction and screenplay.

Neds runs along the same lines as Mullan’s superb The Magdalene Sisters, as an unflinching mixture between social realism and horror that remains both affecting and potently surreal.

This angry film is a forceful slice of life, clearly indebted to the realism of Ken Loach.

This is Peter Mullan’s first film as a writer-director since The Magdalene Sisters (2002), and he has lost none of his power to rattle, rage and occasionally confound.
