The Old Oak, written by Paul Laverty and directed by Ken Loach, tells the story of a pub landlord in an old mining community who struggles to hold onto the business as one of the last public places people in the town can meet.

But the filmmaker is unsure he will ever work on another project again, citing his old age and declining eyesight.
He told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘I’m just not sure I can get around the court again. It’s like an old nag at the Grand National. You think: ‘Good God, I’ll be falling at the first fence!’
