From what we can see from the trailer here, David McKenzie’s latest film looks to be a compelling drama with a very British feel. O’Connell is the perfect candidate to take on the erratic, nasty young man Eric, whilst Mendelsohn looks to fit the bill when it comes to paternal instinct. Starred Up looks to be a film of a heavy subject, full of emotion that is sure to draw you into the intensity of prison life - however brutal and raw the violence is to endure. Let’s see how this one shapes up between prison bars shall we?
Starred Up is out 28th of Feburary
