September/October theme -- Best Films Ever Made
After looking to popular opinion and critical consensus, and having considered which movies they hold in the highest esteem, we’ve put together some of cinema’s finest films.

They’ve been hailed as ground-breaking and influential, for technical innovations and reforming narrative, and as pinnacles of art and entertainment.

Let’s see how we judge and appreciate them now

Where: Ealing Town Hall, New Broadway
Ealing, London W5 2BY

Kes
Directed by Ken Loach
starring David Bradley, Colin Welland, Freddie Fletcher, Lynne Perrie

In South Yorkshire, dragged down by school struggles and a difficult home life, a boy finds a young kestrel -- and a purpose -- as he nurses and trains it to soar the sky.

As ever with the director’s brand of realism, it was shot on location in South Yorkshire with a mostly non-professional cast, resulting in “one of the most powerful coming-of-age stories ever told, containing passages of great beauty.”

The film and its spirit have endured, and it was voted number 7 in the BFI Top 100 British Films.

Winner of BAFTA awards for its actors; best screenplay from the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain; counted in the Top Ten Films by the National Board of Review USA; it got top prizes and high praise at several film festivals
