Gala Premières and special events

Ken Loach's family drama showcases how impossibly high work pressure can lead to financial ruin for families and individuals alike. Ricky, a father of two, starts a new job as a delivery driver. But soon the long and tiresome work hours start to take their toll on Ricky's health and relationships. This film, a portrayal of the bankruptcy of Europe, offered a stage to working class, amateur actors.
