Sept. 4, 2009 - Boston.com - Ty Burr, Globe Staff

Shane Meadows specializes in small, piercing tales of working-class England, some of which are comedies (2002’s “Once Upon a Time in the Midlands’’) and some of which slip into colder waters, like 2006’s brilliant “This Is England.’’ Next to that film, Meadows’s latest, “Somers Town,’’ is a trifle: A short black-and-white lark with sharp edges and a soft center. It has its raptures, though, and then some. A disarmingly slight tale of adolescent friendship, “Somers Town’’ is one of those rare movies that seems to discover itself as you watch it.
