Kes - imdb review

Kes adapted from the Barry Hines novel 'A Kestral for a Knave' is absolutely amazing. The review on imdb says it all for me, so am repeating that review here:

If you are not from the north of England you may have difficulty with the dialogue in this film but don't let it put you off this is a masterpiece. The story of a teenage boy with no friends and no hope set in the mining hear... read more

My favourite British movies (35 movies items)

"Directed by: Ken Loach Plot: A young, English working-class boy spends his free time caring for and training his pet falcon. Note: Even though it is probably the most highly regarded movie directed by Ken Loach, as you can see, it is not my favorite one though. On other hand, I have seen it only once a long time ago so it probably needs a rewatch. Anyway, it is a very strong and heartbreaking drama and it is a huge British classic. "

"01.10. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Ken Loach Gritty realism from a little Yorkshire town depicted as a thoroughly depressing shithole. There's this boy who looks like a kid version of Mark E. Smith whose childish older brother (he's like 25) and P.E. teacher - a complete sadistic fuckwad - give him a hard time, all the time. So what can you do? Well you train a hawk. It is touching. "
