Critic Reviews for Raining Stones

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

Brisk, richly characterized fiction that cuts as deeply and truly as any documentary.

May 20, 2003 | Rating: 4.5/5

Without ever mentioning politics, Loach makes the most powerful and effective of political statements -- one that relies on subtlety and the intelligence of the audience.

The film is good-hearted and the characters are easy to identify with, but what I liked best was the underlying humor, even in this desperate situation.

Gripping and sadly true to life.

Ken Loach: the master.

A Ken Loach masterpiece. Deals with poverty-stricken Irish Catholic's struggle to raise money for his daughter's communion dress.

Audience Reviews for Raining Stones

Another beauty by Ken Loach. Powerful and effective in delivery. The viewer is forced to pick up the hidden nuggests of meaning embedded.
