THE OLD OAK is the last pub standing in a once thriving mining village in northern England, a gathering space for a community that has fallen on hard times. There is growing anger, resentment and a lack of hope among the residents, but the pub and its proprietor, TJ, are a fond presence to their customers. When a group of Syrian refugees move into the floundering town, a decisive rift fueled by prejudices develops between the community and its newest inhabitants. The formation of an unexpected friendship between TJ and a young Syrian woman named Yara opens up new possibilities for the divided village in this deeply moving drama about loss, fear and the difficulty of finding hope. Following the 2020 release of his SORRY WE MISSED YOU, legendary British director Ken Loach, who is 87 years old, announced that THE OLD OAK would be his final film. (Note adapted from Zeitgeist Films.) DIR Ken Loach; SCR Paul Laverty; PROD Rebecca O'Brien. UK, 2023, color, 113 min. NOT RATED
