This is a title that will start playing in virtual theatres tomorrow via Kino’s deal with arthouse theatres.

I'm a Ken Loach fan, so I'll definitely see this.

I'm not familiar with the virtual theatre idea, so no idea when I'll get to see it...

Here’s an example of one that is currently playing: https://www.kinolorber.com/film/view/id/3721

You pick a theatre to stream it through. If you scroll down you’ll see the list. It’s $12. Half goes to the theatre, half to Kino. Some other distributors are doing something similar.

Interesting idea! Thanks for the info. I will actually consider doing this when it's available.

I used the KinoNow app for the virtual theatre and I watched this today. It is a great followup to I, Daniel Blake, but very depressing. It is extremely timely with current world events as well. Many families will be going through similar struggles. It will really make you appreciate all those delivery drivers out there working through the pandemic.

As much as I love Ken Loach films, they are almost always depressing. But, they're so good, they're worth it.

Can you recommend some more? I really loved this latest two, but haven't seen many of his. I did pick up a few from Twilight Time to watch, but I'd track some more down.

Kes is a classic.

The first one I saw was My Name is Joe, starring Peter Mullan. That pretty much hooked me.

Riff-Raff is another good one, with Robert Carlyle. You probably have that, if you picked up some Twilight Time titles.

The Wind That Shakes the Barley, with Cilian Murphy, won the Palme d'Or at Cannes.

I really can't recall being disappointed with any of them. I'm hoping the Criterion Channel will get some of his films, as there are a number that I haven't seen.
