Review:

Bullied at school and ignored and abused at home by his indifferent mother and older brother, Billy Casper (David Bradley), a 15-year-old working-class Yorkshire boy, tames and trains his pet kestrel falcon whom he names Kes. Helped and encouraged by his English teacher Mr. Farthing (Colin Welland) and his fellow students, Billy finally finds a positive purpose to his unhappy existence, until tragedy strikes. - IMDb

A great film. Grim, but humourous. David Bradley gives a wonderfully natural performance in this achingly true-to-life movie.

Excellent storyline, as is the case with all of Barry Hines' material. Sadly a significant portion of the book was cut from the film and as such could make parts of the plot harder to understand.

That said, it is a good film and well worth watching, however I'd advise anyone to read the book as well. Look out for the brilliant early performance of TV hard-man Brian Glover.
