Education ★★★★½

“I am prepared to fight with every breath in my body.”

small axe’s final entry is a moving coming of age tale that manages to illustrate the terrible injustices within the education system yet still leaves us with a real sense of hope in the end. it breaks your heart but allows the chance for it to rebuild itself again in a beautiful and tender way. steve mcqueen has truly made history with this anthology and has been able to encapsulate the experiences and atrocities of the past that unfortunately too often still parallel the present. it’s essential viewing and cinema at its most human.
