Critic Reviews of "Jimmys Hall"St. Louis Post-DispatchAugust 19, 2015
Working from a fact-based screenplay by his longtime collaborator Paul Laverty, Loach addresses a theme that resonates throughout his work: the effect of the political on the personal.Seattle TimesAugust 06, 2015
Loach is clearly on Gralton's side, but he's remarkably evenhanded about it. Norton is a formidable villain, while Ward is just vulnerable enough to make the showdown dramatically persuasive.Globe and MailJuly 17, 2015
As dramatically stilted as Jimmy's Hall is, it has an undeniably appealing integrity ...Philadelphia InquirerJuly 16, 2015
There's humanity here, on all sides, and a gentle wisdom beneath the raging rhetoric.Associated PressJuly 16, 2015
While this deeply romanticized and fictionalized account of a little-known underdog might not serve you in any trivia capacities, it's also a worthy and loving story of humanity in the face of oppression.Movie TalkSeptember 10, 2016
Barry Ward's handsome, charismatic hero is a romanticised figure (in reality Gralton was middle-aged and balding), which wouldn't matter if his character had been given more depth and shade.New Zealand HeraldMay 16, 2016
A handsomely mounted, yet modest and precise piece of work that unearths a little-known true story of injustice and reminds us all of how the present is always in the shadow of the past.South China Morning PostApril 06, 2016
This 1930s-set drama chronicling events leading to the deportation of a little-known, real-life Irish political activist is a graceful digest of Loach's signature motifs.Jerusalem PostMarch 22, 2016
It's mildly entertaining but suffers from the one problem common to all these movies -- that the enemy is so vile, there is little shading.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 09, 2016
... a soft-focus, minor film. It's not bad, but it could have been better. Hence the heartbreak.SF WeeklyDecember 31, 2015
Even an ultimately forgettable effort from this esteemed social-realist director can't help but achieve eloquence in its affirmation of basic human decency.
