Ken Loach Movies

Known for his social-realistic depictions of British working-class life, and treatment of social issues such as poverty, drug-addiction, and labour rights. Genuine activism is all too rare in modern cinema, and rarer still are directors who can make it work like Loach, with powerful messages that never come across as preachy.
