The film that inspired three TV series and made stars of many of its actors, This Is England is a masterpiece of working-class storytelling. Set in 1983, the story belongs to 12-year-old Shaun (Turgoose), who finds a sense of belonging with a group of local skinheads. Turgoose and co-stars including Vicky McClure light up a film where great human drama is played out in greasy-spoon cafes and at rowdy house parties.

The screening on Wednesday 19 September features a Q&A with actors Thomas Turgoose and Jo Hartley and producer Mark Herbert.
