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.

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.

I love the This is England collection; the acting it truly amazing that you think the characters are real. I watched the extras on this DVD which explained the filming and how the producer worked with the cast; amazing insight and why the acting was so realistic. You must watch this if you haven't and definitely watch the extras. Can't wait for TIE '90 which starts tonight on the TV :)

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.

It is amazing especially if you have been following the others and I pre ordered it as I wanted to watch it again. Came on time so I can't complaint and you know when to expect it as they give you a rough date, definately would reccomend it.

I advise anyone wanting to see these DVD's to get the This is England 86 and part one first. This has become a serial and you really need to start at the begining.
Fantastic entertainment, makes you laugh, cry, think and wonder.
I can't wait for the next volume.
