JIMMY'S HALL - 2015-09-04



Director: Ken Loach   UK/Ireland, 2014, 109 minutes

Ken Loach has taken a despicable episode of modern Irish history — the 1933 deportation without trial of one of its own citizens, James Gralton (Barry Ward) — and made a surprisingly lovely, heartfelt film from it. A thematic sequel of sorts to his “The Wind That Shakes the Barley,” Loach’s 24th fiction feature finds the activist-minded director trafficking in familiar themes of individual liberties, institutional oppression and the power of collective organizing, here infused with a gentle romanticism that buoys the film without cheapening the gravity of its subject. All told, it’s a minor-key but eminently enjoyable work by a master craftsman.  -- Variety
