  • Critic Reviews
    "Very funny and a bit sentimental, it's naturalistic comedy of the highest order, with Evets and Henshaw standouts among a terrific cast."
    Hollywood Reporter

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Echoing earlier Loach films like RIFF-RAFF and RAINING STONES, LOOKING relegates politics to the subs' bench, letting humour and humanity lead the frontline."
    Total Film

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[Loach has] made one of his most entertaining, uplifting films....Evets' nervy energy is brilliant."

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Veteran British director Ken Loach fields one of his most accessible and lightly-toned offerings to date with this comedy about a football fanatic trying to sort out his life."
    Box Office

    "[T]here is plenty of grit and working-class stoicism, and also the hovering threat of violence and repressive state power."
    New York Times

    "Quick wit is one quality that makes the film special; another is a tenderness that grows out of the postman's grief..."
    Wall Street Journal
