Trailerama: Down Terrace

Mournful folk songs, NHS spectacles, ravaged old people, bitter young people, intergenerational conflict, a pregnant girlfriend, handguns, underpasses, heart attacks … This couldn’t be any more English if a Beefeater in a bowler hat arrived at the interval with a helping of fish and chips. Ben Wheatley‘s family drama might not be able to avoid all the cliches–it’s centered around a criminal father and son on their release from prison. It commands attention, however, both for the speed with which it was made–eight days–and the cast of unknowns led by real-life father and son Robert and co-writer Robin Hill.
