An Amazon user comments:

This is a classic British movie skillfully directed by Ken Loach. It depicts the reality of life for working class people in northern England at the end of the 1960s and start of the 1970s. The film has moments which will make you laugh out loud and moments which will make you cry. I saw this movie when it was first released and it is as good today as it was then. It is a window into a time which has, fortunately, long since passed. Whether you remember this period of time or you're too young to remember it, this is a movie you really should check out. A real cinematic classic.
