Ken Loach

Spirit of ’45

Whisper it softly, but Ken Loach's stirring documentary about the cause and effect of Labour's post-war election victory beats any of his fiction features lately - it's probably his best film since Sweet Sixteen. It's well-timed, too, as a call to arms against the policies that have progressively demolished the Britain that Clement Attlee and Aneurin Bevan aimed to build.

- Tim Robey, The Telegraph

Ken Loach's nostalgic homage to the birth of the welfare state and Beveridge spirit is salutary for our age of austerity.

- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
