Brutal, Not Safe For Work Clips From The Remarkably Powerful Starred Up

David MacKenzie's Starred Up is in UK cinemas today. It's finally putting Jack O'Connell front and centre of his own film. As you'll see from these clips, he gives an incredibly intense performance.

The title of the film, by the way, refers to O'Connell's Eric, a young offender, being moved to "adult prison" ahead of his 21st birthday on account of his… temperament. You'll get just a taste of that in these clips.

There's a couple more clips on the YouTube channel if you chase through, though I might suggest you just go see the thing in full.

The US release of Starred Up has been promised for later this year. Here in the UK, it's in cinemas right now.
