Jimmy’s Hall

Jimmys hall

 I saw a terrific film today.It was part of the Perth International film festival and was called Jimmy’s Hall. It is from the legendary director Ken Loach and unfortunately this is his last film. It is based on a true story about the life of Jimmy Gralton – a dreamer, leader and the only Irish person to be deported from Ireland because he unfortunately  had an American passport as well as an Irish one. Because Jimmy tries to re-open the Town Hall for the development of people’s minds and bodies, he is  unceremoniously deported back to America. The film has humour, brilliant acting and a very interesting story. A must see for all film lovers.
