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.
