CGiii Comment

Gawd - life is certainly grim (up north).

Jesus, there's just no respite from this misery.

But...there just might be light at the end of the grimy tunnel.

This is typical social commentary - courtesy of Mr Loach.

It is definitely a defining moment, a landmark in the British film industry.

The(ir) Blurb...

Bullied at school and ignored and abused at home by his indifferent mother and older brother, Billy Casper (David Bradley), a 15-year-old working-class Yorkshire boy, tames and trains his pet kestrel falcon whom he names Kes.
