Rising star Jack O’Connell cut his teeth on the likes of This is England and Skins, but with his brilliant performance in this thriller proved he has what it takes to become a major force, both at home and in Hollywood. The plot focuses on a British soldier in Belfast in 1971 who becomes separated from his unit while attempting to control a riot. The film charts his battle to make it to safety during a night spent in a hostile and unfamiliar area. Sean Harris, Richard Dormer and Paul Anderson also star in director Yann Demange’s feature film debut, but it’s O’Connell who stands head and shoulders above everyone.
