Overview

Drawing on the traditions of Italian neorealism, Ken Loach presents a poignant story of personal sacrifice, as Bob (Coronation Street’s Bruce Jones) seeks out the funds to buy his daughter a costly communion dress. The result is a raw and emotionally affecting film drawn with typical beauty and simplicity by Britain's master of social realism.
