Dead Man's Shoes(2006)

This is a really well-made film centered on the revenge of a soldier, taken against a gang of thugs who wronged his mentally challenged brother while he was away with military service. The small-town 'gang' are almost laughably pathetic in most situations, which makes the idea that they've somehow worked themselves up to hurt someone all the more maddening and leads the audience to easily fall into sympathizing with our lead Paddy Considine, who can turn from affable to menacing on a dime in this role.

Highly recommended.
