Jimmy’s Hall

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

KEN Loach is back in the di­rect­ing chair for a film in­spired by the de­por­ta­tion of Ir­ish po­lit­i­cal ac­tivist Jimmy Gral­ton to Amer­ica in the 1920s. Re­turn­ing to his home coun­try in 1932 to help run the fam­ily farm, he finds a new govern­ment in power. Re­open­ing the hall where he once stood on his po­lit­i­cal soap box as a cen­tre for young people to meet and dance, suc­cess comes quickly, but Jimmy’s rad­i­cal ideas are not to ev­ery­one’s taste.

On gen­eral re­lease.
