Purported to be British director Ken Loach’s last film, Jimmy’s Hall is set in rural Catholic Ireland in the 1930s, where everyday life is overseen by the watchful eye of the church.
Jimmy Gralton is a revolutionary, who builds a dance hall in his local village to provide a life away from the church, whilst also giving him a platform to expound his political views. His actions soon provoke the ire of the local priests, with catastrophic consequences. A relatively unknown Irish cast deliver a moving portrait of a community attempting to break free from the old order.
