The Old Oak (15), UK, 2023

Local tensions arise in a small town following the arrival of Syrian refugees in this gritty UK drama in which anti-immigrant discrimination and scenes of threatening behaviour are balanced by criticism and challenge.

A northern pub landlord confronts locals’ hostility towards Syrian immigrants in Ken Loach’s latest – and possibly last – piece of politically trenchant cinema.
