THE OLD OAK (Drama, UK/Belgium/France, 2023; Director: Ken Loach; Starring: Andy Dawson, Dave Turner, Ebla Marie; Duration: 113 minutes)
The Old Oak is a special place. Not only is it the last remaining pub, it is also the only public place where people can come together in what was once a thriving mining town which is now falling on very difficult times, after 30 years of relentless decline. The pub’s owner, TJ Ballantyne (Dave Turner), is barely able to keep going, and the situation becomes more dire when The Old Oak becomes contested territory following the arrival of Syrian refugees who have been relocated to the village. TJ forms an unexpected friendship with a young Syrian woman, Yara (Ebla Marie). Will the two communities be able to find a way to communicate?
The Old Oak is a poignant drama about loss, fear, and the difficulty of finding hope again
