Synopsis

1945 was a pivotal year in British history. The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better, fairer society. Director Ken Loach captures a time where the spirit of the age was to be our brother’s and sister’s keeper.

MUBI's take

Ken Loach is as well known in the UK for his political activism as he is his filmmaking. This panoramic documentary charts the glory days of parliamentary socialism, using interviews and archive footage to celebrate a moment of seismic postwar reconstruction, and by implication, mourn its loss.
