NEDS (Non-Educationed Delinquents) is Peter Mullan’s much anticipated return to filmmaking following 2002’s award-winning The Magdalene Sisters. Set in 1970s Glasgow, it’s a dark coming-of-age tale about working-class teenager John McGill, whose promise at school and potential for success is jeopardised by the allure of gang culture.
It was premiered at the Toronto Film Festival at the end of last year and has been shown at both the London Film Festival and Spain’s San Sebastien Film Festival, where is picked up two top honours. With rave reviews from critics all over the world NEDS certainly is worth a watch if you get the chance. It is in selected cinemas across the UK from 21st January. I personally am excited to see this, as growing up in Glasgow I’m all too familiar with the common NED!
