Description

Details

British filmmaking showed much of its potential in this marvellous production chronicling the boyhood experiences of Billy, whose expectations lead no further than following his brother into the pits when he reaches manhood.

Everything changes when he finds Kes, a young kestrel, whom he trains. Their relationship becomes symbolic of a doomed attempt to escape the drudgery of the industrial North.

Kes is a marvellous, moving and compassionate film, realistic yet funny. Written and directed by Ken Loach, one of the most politically committed British filmmakers, Kes is an astute and authentic analysis of society at large.
