For Screen and Country – Kes (#7)

Written by on February 18, 2019

This week, Brendan and Jason discuss Ken Loach’s “bleaklifting” coming-of-age film – “Kes.” The guys discuss whether this is either the most depressing or uplifting film of all-time, talk at length about the wild gym class scene, talk about the “down-and-dirty” nature of most of the characters and much more.

Plus: The guys roll the dice to find out what movie they’ll be covering next week. Have any of you seen Kes? What do you think of it? Bleak? Happy? Let us know!
