Theatrical trailer for Starred Up.
19-year-old Eric, arrogant and ultra-violent, is prematurely transferred to the same adult prison facility as his estranged father. As his explosive temper quickly finds him enemies in both prison authorities and fellow inmatesand his already volatile relationship with his father is pushed past breaking pointEric is approached by a volunteer psychotherapist, who runs an anger management group for prisoners. Torn between gang politics, prison corruption, and a glimmer of something better, Eric finds himself in a fight for his own life, unsure if his own father is there to protect him or join in punishing him. Written by prison system therapist Jonathan Asser, Starred Up is a merciless, uncompromising portrayal of a dehumanizing life behind bars.
The terminology "starred up" defines the early transfer of a young offender to high security adult prison. Some other "fun" slang includes "Dance on the blacktop", which means to be stabbed. See? Fun, right?
