My Name Is Joe

Once again Ken Loach has directed a gripping drama that expresses his anger at the social conditions in United Kingdom today. It is a slice of life. When I watched it, I felt closer to reality than fiction, which is as much thanks to the nuanced performances of the actors as to Loach's direction. The film is not just indignant social realism. There is room for humour as well, at least to begin with.
   Peter Mullan who plays Joe was awarded a prize for best actor at the Cannes festival in 1998. Joe lives in the slums of Glasgow and he is out of work, but being an ex-alcoholic who hasn't touched the bottle for nine months, he feels on top of things. When he meets and falls in love with Sarah, a health visitor, the sun shines even brighter, but his happiness is frail. When Liam, a young father and husband, is in desperate need for help, Joe tries to give him that help even though it endangers his own happiness.
