The Old Oak (15)

Friday, October 6

Dir. Ken Loach, UK, 2023, 113 mins. Cast. Dave Turner, Ebla Mari, Debbie Honeydew.

The Old Oak is a special place. Not only is it the last pub standing, but it is also the only remaining public space where people can meet in a once thriving mining community that has now fallen on hard times after 30 years of decline. TJ Ballantyne the landlord hangs on to The Old Oak by his fingertips, and his hold is endangered even more when the pub becomes contested territory after the arrival of Syrian refugees who are placed in the village. In an unlikely friendship TJ encounters a young Syrian, Yara, with her camera. Can they find a way for the two communities to understand each other? So unfolds a deeply moving drama about loss, fear and the difficulty of finding hope.
