Starred Up

Starred Up ★★★½

Jack O'Connell is a tightly wound ball of energy in this film, and even when it trots out the traditional prison tropes it's hard to take your eyes off the screen. Mostly avoids melodrama and consistently feels as if violence is one word away from the surface. Might be too exhausting to revisit, but definitely worth it for O'Connell's performance alone.
