Our take

From the filmmaking team behind Palme d’Or winners I, Daniel Blake and The Wind that Shakes the Barley, this similarly socially-conscious drama from Ken Loach & Paul Laverty has—in the years since its release—lost little of its relevance. A nuanced take on complex issues of immigration and labor.
