Director: Ken Loach
Cast: Mark Womack, Andrea Lowe, John Bishop
Ken Loach moves from Looking for Eric to Saving Private Frankie with this bleak war-themed drama. Fergus (Womack) and Frankie (comedian John Bishop) were best friends. They grew up together, went to school together, shipped off to Iraq together. Not as soldiers, you understand, but as mercenaries with a security firm; a company making profit from the privatisation of Britain's war efforts (hello, political subtext).
