Product Description

Renowned filmmaker Shane Meadows follows up the explosive award-winning This Is England ’86 with This Is England ’88.

Meadows picks up the action in the Christmas of 1988 as Lol struggles to cope with what life has thrown at her. Haunted by the devastating events which took place 18 months previously, she finds her reserves of strength ebbing away. With her soul mate, Woody, heartbroken from her betrayal and in self-imposed exile from the gang, Lol becomes increasingly isolated and alone. They say Christmas is a time for forgiving and for forgetting, a time of love and laughter and joy ever after. But when all hope seems lost, what peace is there to be found? This is Christmas. This is England.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best yet, 19 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
Utter genius and the best TV drama i've seen for a long time.
Different to the first two in pace and humour (less of each) but i feel it's the best yet due to some deep exploration of the pain of separation and sense of loss,
Absolutely top class performance from the actors playing Woody and Lol , outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 10 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
In my opinion the best yet in the TIE series. Quite bleak but thought provoking and still retains flashes of dark humour. Sublime acting, fabulously shot a real must watch. Keep 'em coming Mr Meadows.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but not great

Apart from Woody and Lol there is little in the way of character development. Read more
