Out of Control (2002) is a BBC television film written and directed by Dominic Savage. It stars Tamzin Outhwaite as Shelley Richards, an impoverished single mother whose son, Dean (Danny Young), is involved in a string of crimes that lead to his incarceration in a young offenders institute (YOI). David Morrissey plays prison warden Mike, who tries to keep Dean out of trouble but has difficultly watching him all the time. After continuous bullying at the YOI, Dean is no longer able to cope and makes a fatal decision. It is the third in a loose trilogy of films by Savage about social deprivation, following Nice Girl (2000) and When I Was Twelve (2001).
