Tale of a demoralized, unemployed dockworker who becomes easy prey for fascist appeals. Stephen Frears' toughest, leanest and most visually accomplished film yet, with superb period renderings of English working-class life in the 1930s, and political and religious content that should prove explosive to some audiences.
