The Gamekeeper

0 Love It
Save it
Loach's adaptation for TV of a script by Barry (Kes) Hines is a superb study of a year in the life of a gamekeeper working on an aristocrat's Northern estate, subtly examining his relationships with his family, his employer, his dog, and the land itself. Avoiding didactic simplifications, beautifully shot by Chris Menges, and superbly acted, it's the type of totally honest social document that shows up a film like Begging the Ring for the half-baked idea it is.
