A film by Ken Loach. In English with German subtitles.
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.
