Effective First Teaser For British Prison Drama Starred Up

British cinema seems littered with a number of ‘hard-men’ features that fill up DVD bargain bins in supermarkets and make little impact abroad. It creates a kind of bias in a lot of audiences that turns them off anything that looks a little like that.

I think Dexter Fletcher’s wonderful Wild Bill suffered somewhat from this and I wouldn’t be surprised if Starred Up has the similar difficulties in shaking off those preconceptions.

This first teaser certainly does a good job of distancing the film from that sort of fare though. Atmospheric, intriguing and bleak this looks like a very interesting film indeed.

Warning, lots of NSFW language in this short teaser.

Starred Up will play the London Film Festival next month and is due for release in the UK in 2014.
