It's a Free World

Ken Loach once again tells a story of the working class. Not as far-ranging as last year’s Wind that Shakes the Barley, but still a good story with great truthful acting.

The film sheds light on the plight of European immigrants -- legal and illegal -- and the trials and tribulations they go through while trying to find work and subsist in the UK.
