A pub as a place of divi­si­on, but also inter­ac­tion: In his new film, Ken Loach is once again a keen-sigh­ted, warm-hear­ted seis­mo­graph of British socie­ty. The Old Oak is the only remai­ning public place whe­re peo­p­le in the once thri­ving North English mining com­mu­ni­ty of Easington can meet. After 30 years of decli­ne, TJ Ballantyne, the land­lord, is despe­ra­te to save the pub, but with the arri­val of Syrian refu­gees two dif­fe­rent rea­li­ties meet head-on. When TJ makes fri­ends with Yara, a young Syrian woman, the two try to bring the two cul­tures clo­ser tog­e­ther. For a bet­ter future – and for The Old Oak.
