Drama, Period and Historical
Legendary British director Ken Loach delivers a typically engrossing, passionate, provocative film. In 1921 Jimmy Gralton set up a dance hall in his local Irish village, a free community space for people to learn and debate, but also have fun. However the local Catholic Church felt threatened by what they saw as Jimmy’s subversive agenda and communist beliefs, forcing the hall to close and Jimmy to leave. Quietly returning a decade later, he soon comes under pressure from residents to reopen the hall and take a stand against growing cultural oppression. A powerful take on how the arts enrich our lives, Loach produces a stark warning on the dangers of repression, both individually and collectively.
Palme d'Or-winning Ken Loach film about Irish rebellion against British rule in the 1920s.
