Starred Up

Starred Up is one fine indie film. Jack O’Connell is excellent in it and just one heck of an actor. I’ve seen him in other flicks and I get the sense that he can act in nearly any kind of role. I put him in that Johnny Depp, Ed Norton category of great modern day actor.If I had my own studio, he’d be in several films.

What does Starred Up mean? Well, if you are a real pain in the ass, even in the prison world, you get Starred Up and move to a higher security prison.

Starred Up is about a troubled teen, Eric (Jack O’Connell) that goes to high security prison for adults and stirs it up often with anyone. He runs into to someone that makes an impact: his father.

Great story.
