    Talking 207-essex?

    Hello all

    I was searching the names of some movies in the internet and I found a movie called (essex boys).
    What does this word mean? I couldn't find it in the dictionary.

    Thank you

    Essex is a county in England, south of London. The inhabitants of the area ('Essex boys' or 'Essex girls') are widely considered by the English to be unsophisticated, lower-class, badly-educated and violent. The film is a dramatisation of a true gangland murder, and so the characters are naturally violent. Hence the title is an ironic reference to the stereotype of 'Essex boys'.
