'Britsters (Brit + Hipsters)': Modern British Indie

The ever-modest British have been quietly churning out quality independent dramas for some time now. Enjoy the very best of them, including recent musical number "God Help the Girl' (with Cassie from Skins!), and critically acclaimed coming-of-age story 'Wild Bill'.

'Put Away Childish Things': Indie Comings-of-Age

Modern independent dramas portraying the tumultuous transitions of adolescents into slightly older adolescents. Make sure to check out 'I Believe in Unicorns' for a great new film from director Leah Meyerhoff, depicting an imaginative teenage girl's attempt to grapple with the premature onset of adulthood's responsibilities.

'Movies Like Submarine': 'British Boyhood' Movies

These flicks follow British lads as they face bullies, strict parents, and a keen awareness of their own virginity on the painful path to adulthood; includes gritty coming-of-age masterpiece 'Kes', set in the grim, industrial North, and modern London crime-drama 'Wild Bill'.

'Brits Get Grit': British Social Realism

Ever since Dickens, the Brits have had a fascination with the social realist aesthetic: unflinching, unromanticized portrayals of working class life. Enjoy the best examples of this gritty genre from 1990 onwards (and check out our 'Kitchen Sink Classics' for the movement's progenitor).
