Peter Mullen gives the screen performance of the year as an alcoholic who coaches the worst football team in Glasgow in Ken Loach's blistering working-class melodrama, My Name is Joe. When Joe meets community health visitor Sarah (Louise Goodall), hope and romance bloom, but Joe's attempts to protect one of his young players from the mob's local debt collectors lead the couple into dark territory. An unflinching portrait of lives lived on the social and economic margins, shot through with humour and humanity.
