Bruce Dennill quote iconThe performances are uniformly top-notch, and the impact of the subject matter, especially given our own recent xenophobia problems, is immediate.

Jason Anderson quote iconThough It’s a Free World… falls short of Loach’s best work, the director does something surprising: he humanizes the issue of economic exploitation by focusing not on a victim but a beneficiary.
