Lewes Film ClubThe spirit of Ken loach hangs over this warm and rewardingly aware tale of homelessness at Christmas. Peter Mullan once again demonstrates the authenticity and honesty that he has shown before, this time in the role of Hector, a homeless drifter. The film chronicles his journey from Scotland to London and the shelter that has become his regular Yuletide home, and to reconnect with his siblings, potently evoking one man's quest to wrangle his life back in from society's edges.
