Starred Up  [2013]
DirectorDavid Mackenzie
CastRupert Friend, Ben Mendelsohn, Jack O'Connell
The prison movie genre gets a fresh shot of youthful grit in this hard-hitting but big-hearted drama about a teenaged inmate transferred to the adult prison where his own father is incarcerated.
When troubled teenager Eric is transferred to an adult prison, the new environment serves only to amplify his ultra-violent behavior. He soon comes to the attention of the prison kingpin, who assigns his lieutenant Nev to keep the boy under control. The problem however is that Nev is Eric’s father. They have not seen each other for 12 years, and an uncomfortable stand-off begins as father and son battle to gain some kind of understanding after a decade of mistrust and separation.
