Regularly voted one of the greatest British films of all time. Billy Casper, a Barnsley lad who doesn't want to go 'darn t'pit' finds a refuge from street-life in training a wild kestrel. David Bradley is stunning as Billy. The stinging unsentimental realism of the drama amid the south Yorkshire landscape is marvellously brought to life through Chris Menges' camerawork.
