Kes

1969 PG-13

Billy Casper (David Bradley) is a puny kid from the poor end of Barnsley. He's struggling in school, bullied by his older brother and basically dismissed by everyone else. But when he finds an injured fledgling kestrel, he begins to train the bird. In the process, he learns a lot about himself. This award-winning coming-of-age drama from director Ken Loach is based on the novel by Barry Hines and co-stars Freddie Fletcher and Brian Glover.
