Entertainment from the Clarion Choir, Dave Puller and Nat Clare,
The Golden Dream (Dir: Diego Quemada-Díez 2013) The director was Ken Loach’s a camera assistant on several films and the influence is apparent. Three kids with dollar bills sewn secretly into their jeans plan on hopping boxcars and riding the rails right up the American border. At every stage they face terrible danger from people for whom their young lives are worth less than zero. It's a tough, absorbing and suspenseful drama, excellently acted by its three non-professional leads.
