A film screening as part of Two Rivers Book Festival
Based on the Barry Hines novel, A Kestrel for a Knave, Ken Loach’s second feature film won BAFTAs in 1970 and its reputation has endured since. Fifteen-year-old Billy Casper (Bradley) finds refuge from bullying at home and school through training a pet kestrel whom, he names Kes. There is pathos and humour.
Directed by Ken Loach, UK, 1969
David Bradley, Colin Welland, Brian Glover
