Violent Grammar Gang Teaches a Lesson to Poor Spellers in 'This is English'


Comedy short film from Liam Wilson follows a group attempting to put a stop to poor English

Violent Grammar Gang Teaches a Lesson to Poor Spellers in 'This is English'

Do you feel a twinge of anger when someone on your zoom call says ‘pacifically’? 

Does a missplaced apostrophe make you want to weep for humanity?

Does the spelling of ‘misplaced’ in that last sentence make you want to hurt someone?

Then you might like short film ‘This is English’.

A comedy following a group of violent grammar pedants attempting to put a stop to poor English. A full stop.

The film was written by Liam Wilson, directed by duo ‘That Jam’, and stars a whole host of funny faces including David Schaal (Inbetweeners, The Office), Jack Doolan (Marcella, White Gold), and Donna Preston (Fully Blown, BBC3).

It has had a successful festival run so far, winning Best Comedy at Edinburgh International and Best British Film at London Short Series Festival. It was Officially Selected at the Bafta-Qualifying Aesthetica Festival as well as numerous others across the country, picking up nominations for Best Short Film, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Comedy along the way.

The film ends with a great soundtrack performed by Mummy to really teach the audience a lesson. A verbal warning, both literally and figuratively.
