Synopsis

Unemployed and with years of alcoholism behind, Joe coaches Scotland’s least successful football team. During an odd job, he meets Sarah, a health worker. The two fall in love. She is captivated by Joe’s rough edges as much as he is by her. But that’s where the trouble starts.

MUBI's take

One of Ken Loach’s lesser-known films, yet no less compassionate and sincere. A story of love and solidarity gone awry, My Name is Joe portrays with care its larger-than-life titular character, interpreted with visceral fervor by Peter Mullan, who won the Best Actor award in Cannes for the role.
