Interview with director of ‘The Wind That Shakes The Barley’ and ‘Looking For Eric’

Ken Loach was in Dublin last week to promote his new movie ‘Looking For Eric’. The serious comedy comedy features soccer legend Eric Cantona as the heroic adviser and counselor of his namesake, the disillusioned Eric the postman.

Previously, Ken Loach has directed some of the finest British movies of all time, classics like Kes, Sweet Sixteen, Ae Fond Kiss. He recently caused controversy with his depiction of violence in Ireland in ‘The Wind That Shakes the Barley’.
