The Old Oak

Date Shown

12th June 2024

This is surely Ken Loach’s last, completing his trilogy – ‘I, Daniel Blake’ (2016), ‘Sorry we Missed You’ (2019), and now ‘The Old Oak’ (2023).
Set in a once-thriving mining community in the north-east, the Old Oak pub is the last remaining public space where people can meet. When Syrian refugees are housed in the village without notice, the landlord tries desperately to show the two communities how to understand and help each other.
This deeply moving, relevant film is a fitting tribute to a towering British film-maker’s career. Definitely not to be missed.

‘A film as fired up and human as any you’ll see this year’ Time Out magazine.
