100 minutes so the perfect length, but I had to watch it at 1.5x fast forward because it was so depressing… a Ken Loach movie, after all. I enjoyed it though, a real tearjerker … once again about the welfare state in England, an old guy caught up in the same old maddening bureaucracy, though now “digital by default.”
Green rating, recommended, but be prepared, it will put you through the ringer.
(Tony Lane wasn’t thrilled with “the emotional wallop [that] grows more zealous with almost every sequence,“ and I see his point, but there aren’t enough political movies like this one, as far as I’m concerned. I still recommend it.)
