Violently poetic

When notoriously violent juvenile offender Eric Love is transferred to an adult high security prison, he is forced to deal with the fact that his father Neville is among the other inmates. Neville has spent most of his life behind bars, but the father-son reunion is marred by the fact that Eric is forced to go through a series of lethal initiations to determine his place in the prison hierarchy. Claustrophobic and extremely violent, STARRED UP is a gritty drama about two men defined by their inability to express their emotions, who are forced to deal with their relationship within a system of relentless violence.
