Billy and Kes
Kes (1969)

Director Ken Loach's acclaimed film of hope and hopelessness among the poor working families of Yorkshire in the '60s, Kes has an animal connection at its heart. Billy, who comes from nothing and is abused by everyone in his life, finds new life when he steals a young kestrel and learns falconry on his own to bond with the bird.
