Starting with Faith, Hope and Charity a short film which documents the work of the Council for Voluntary Service, in Carlisle over 100 years.
According to The Guardian’s Jonathan Romney, Jimmy's Hall finds Director Ken Loach in lyrical, but typically angry, form. It tells the true story of Jimmy Gralton an Irishman who was deported from his own country without trial in 1933. His crime – to have set up a public hall in County Leitrim, a venue for education, community events and musical shindigs both traditional and featuring the jazz that Gralton had brought back from America. Gralton, a socialist, arouses the local forces of intolerance and shocked grumblings about "jazzy music … pelvic thrusts" and "the 'Losangelisation' of our people".

This (possible) swansong from Brit veteran Ken Loach contains some of his finest work in years.
