Still Ken. - Bread and Roses review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
23/09/2014

Loach's first film with an American theme typically finds him engaged in social politics on the side of the oppressed: an illegal Mexican immigrant working as a cleaner in an LA office block fights for the right to unionise. Typical Ken: a funny, moving and righteous film about labour relations!
