This film broke me. I love Ken Loach so much. If you love Billy Elliot, you will love Kes 🦅
Now what a movie set in Yorkshire England and the story is simple but beautiful about the love from a boy too his pet kestrel 🦅
A bleak insight into the 70s amongst the British working-class. Brilliantly directed and painfully detached.
A classic social realist film, great watch
Magical childhood memories of school brought alive, bit sad though
Coming of age with multiple emotions felt through the movie. One to see if you're interested in "The Everyday Life" theme.
Touching working class drama. The masterpiece of Ken Loach.
Sad and critical with powerful perfomances.
Introduces the hardships of living in a mining town well. You will also get some feels out of it.
Growing up with birds makes this a tough watch. Good kid acting in this
Slow-ish film with an almost docu-like fashion with a very depressing ending. Excellent movie if you want to feel like crap.
Not a film for those of you trying to lift your spirits, but a generally good novel adaptation, even if it is a bit plain and kind of boring
Beautiful, sad, frustrating, and not appreciated enough. An original story for a coming-of-age film.
A classic I’m told. I cannot remember it.
I'm a Yorkshireman. It's generic that we like this! That and Brian Glover is utterly brilliant, always.
Shite? My Auld man bigs it up, but I don't dig it, wasn't it a TV movie?
On the curriculum for anybody who likes a film
My favourite Ken Loach film that I’ve seen. Great British coming of age story, don’t expect to be in a happy mood afterwards.
A melancholy drama about the highs and lows of a child and his Kestrel in the mid 20th century. Depressing but brutally truthful.
Not a bag of laughs but a great movie and an important early contribution to social realism from Ken Loach.
