Desperate to find the money to pay for his daughter’s First Holy Communion dress, an out-of-work Brit takes on a series of odd jobs. Short of the cash he needs, he turns to a local loan shark and puts his entire family at risk. Two-time Palme d’Or winner Ken Loach (The Wind that Shakes the Barley, I, Daniel Blake) has built a remarkable body of work shedding much needed light on the plight of the working class. Raining Stones is a highlight of post-Thatcher economic struggle.
