Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #111. Ken Loach’s Jimmy’s Hall

Jimmy’s Hall

Director: Ken Loach
Writer: Paul Laverty
Producer: Rebecca O’Brien
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Barry Ward, Simone Kirby, Andrew Scott, Jim Norton, Brían F. O’Byrne

The good news is that Ken Loach will continue with his docu films, but despite keeping up an almost year per year pace, it looks like the filmmaker who works in the most virtuous narrative feature cinema (dating back to Kes) will bow out from his career with Jimmy’s Hall which sticks to the format we like best: period-drama.

Gist: Political activist Jimmy Gralton is deported from Ireland during the country’s ‘Red Scare’ of the 1930s

Release Date: Scheduled for a May release in the U.K., betch your bottom dollar that Cannes snags this for their line-up.
