Bob Balaban's dark comic horror about a young boy suspecting his suburban parents to be cannibals
1945 was a pivotal year in British history. Great changes in the post war social and political landscape redefined the way Britain was run. This documentary by Ken Loach is about the spirit of that era.
1945 was a pivotal year in British history. The unity that carried Britain through the war allied to the bitter memories of the inter-war years led to a vision of a better society. The spirit of the age was to be our brother's and our sister's keeper.
Director Ken Loach has used film from Britain's regional and national archives, alongside sound recordings and contemporary interviews to create a rich political and social narrative. The Spirit Of '45 hopes to illuminate and celebrate a period of unprecedented community spirit in the UK, the impact of which endured for many years and which may yet be rediscovered today.
The Spirit Of ’45 is available to buy on DVD from Dogwoof now. It’s a bit of a special release – as well as the film itself, which Time Out’s Dave Calhoun calls “powerful, rousing and saddening”, you’ll get a second disc featuring over seven hours of extras, an interview with Ken Loach and Ken Loach’s 53 minute documentary Which Side Are You On? from 1985.
