Feature Film - twentyfourseven

In this 1997 black-and-white movie, juveniles in a typical English working-class town have nothing more to do than hang around in gangs. One day, Alan Darcy (Bob Hoskins), a highly motivated man with the same kind of youth experience, starts trying to get the young people off the street and into doing something they can believe in - boxing.

Soon he opens a training facility which is accepted gratefully by them and the gangs start to grow together into friends. Darcy manages to organize a public fight for them to prove what they have learned. A training camp with hiking tours into the mountains of Wales forge the group into a tight-knit club society. With the day of the fight drawing closer, the young boxers get more and more excited.

Written by Paul Fraser and Shane Meadows. Directed by Shane Meadows.

This movie won many European independent movie awards, including British Movie of the Year
