It's a Free World
This is a review of what sounds like a really good film from the filmmaker Ken Loach. It deals with one of the major, pressing issues of our day, illegal immigration. From what I've read, it seems to deal with it in a unique way and approaches it from a realistic perspective, rather than a preachy and patronizing one, which is really easy to fall into. The underlying theme to the film, as stated in the last sentence, seems to be that this issue is so large and complex, that there aren't merely no simple solutions, but that it's in a lot of peoples' interests to ensure that no solution of any kind is sought.
