Loach's phenomenally powerful drama about a single mother on Merseyside whose string of abusive relationships leads to repeated confrontations with the social services and the threatened loss of her children. Stand-up comic Crissy Rock delivers a force-of-nature performance, while Loach's unsentimental empathy makes sure we feel every blow that she takes to both body and soul.
Dir Ken Loach, UK 1994, 101 mins, Cert 18
