Entertainment One UK have given us this new exclusive clip from their movie, NEDS, which is released on both DVD and Blu-ray this Monday, 23rd May. In the scene, we get to see John McGill walking through a park. Wee T then tries to mug him before realising who his brother is is backtracking rather swiftly!

NEDS is written and directed by Peter Mullan and stars Marianna Palka, Steven Robertson, David McKay, Douglas Russell, Linda Cuthbert, Martin Bell. If you missed it, check out our interview with Peter Mullan & Conor McCarron for NEDS that we conducted for the theatrical release.

Synopsis: Peter Mullan’s third feature as a writer and director, after Orphans and The Magdalene Sisters, returns him to the 1970s Glasgow of his youth, although the Trainspotting and My Name is Joe actor stresses that Neds (which stands for ‘Non-Educated Delinquents’) is ‘personal but not autobiographical’.

We meet confident, studious John McGill just as he’s about to start secondary school, where he fully expects to continue his so-far glittering academic career. But there are dark clouds on the horizon. His friendship with middle-class Julian shines a light on both his poor background and the dysfunction of his home, where his father is drunk, violent and ineffective, his mother is troubled and repressed and his elder brother is always in trouble with the law. At school, there are one or two good teachers, but most are uninterested and unhelpful in the face of the brutal and territorial gang culture which has spread from local housing estates to the schoolyard.
