When honest young Tolly is forced on the run with ‘Black Jack’, a villainous ruffian, adventure and mishap are never far away. As the two enter a world of body-snatchers, private lunatic asylums and traveling fairs they find friendship in the most unlikely places.

MUBI's take

Ken Loach’s third feature marks an abrupt change of direction for the British filmmaker already internationally renowned for his kitchen-sink dramas. An 18th-century picaresque adapted from the children’s novel by Leon Garfield, Black Jack is a vividly inhabited adventure for audiences of all ages.
