This film contains strong language

and prolonged violent scenes.

Right. Eh... my wife and I...

My wife and I would like

to thank you all -

my parents, who feel

they're not so much losing a son

as losing a liability.


If we'd been a tribe

of Cherokee Indians,

well, with names like

Running Bear and Running Water,

the only name for me would

have been Running Sore.


But anyway, my wife and I...


Come on! Hey, hey, hey!

Yes, we've got it.

We've got it. Thank you, son.

Over here through midfield.

Yes! And Mrs Scoular...

Yeah! And again!

I've got it.

Scoular gets the ball.

He turns. He shoots!


Put me down!


..up the hill on the left.

Where? Up that way?

There's another way up there?

OK. See you.

Are yous back already?

Oh, caught me at it. I cannae stop

myself! It's a compulsion.

How's that?


That's fine.

Driving a delivery van. Jesus.

It's a job.

Look, it's only an interview.

Right. Done the washing

and the ironing and the cleaning

and the tidying, scrubbed the floors

and reslated the roof.

Thank you.

And the bin's out for the bin men,

removed the wisdom tooth -

the one at the back.

Slashed my wrists - twice.

And now I've just got to drop off

the Christmas Club money at Wally's.

Back before closing time?

Aye, before closing time. Are you

really going to get a job, Dad?

Wait and see, pet.

Will it be far away?

Maybe. Who's going to play

football with me, then?

I am! Come on. Where's the ball?

Last out's a big jessie!


Yeah! Yeah, all right!

Who's in goals?

I am, I suppose. You're still wearing

your best shoes! Come on, then!

Danny! We need

a new as centre-forward.

Go on, Danny. Kids, come on, then.

Go in and change.

You ready? Born ready.

Good evening, gentlemen.

I hope you're both alcoholics.

Gin and tonic, pint of heavy.

OK, boy. OK.

Good evening, Wally. Hi, Danny.

It's not a bad night.

Aye, it's not bad.

That's what I'm saying, Alan.

Alan, if Thornbank was worth

fighting for during the strike,

it's worth fighting for now.

The struggle goes on.

Hi, lads. Hi, Danny.

Do you understand what

I'm saying here, Alan?

Sam, lads.

I'm just an ordinary barman, Vince.

My thanks to you as an

astute political activist.

You all right, Danny? Vince.

Coal miners in the eastern bloc

are asking why we lost the strike.

Look, the great British

miners' strike of 1984.

Want to know what we did right,

what we did wrong. We got beat.

That's a hard enough lesson to

learn. That's what I'm saying, Sam.

This country knows how to shelve

democracy as well as the next.

Next time we crack their skulls

before they crack ours.

Tell that to the scabs.

Frankie! Alan, a pint

of heavy for my big pal here.

Are you feeling all right, Frankie?

Nae problem, Danny.

I just got back from New York,

as it happens. Your mother said.

A wee bit of business -

flight paid for. Yourself?

Interview for a job tomorrow -

van driver.

Van driver!

Beth wants me to go.

Give me a minute, will you, Dan?


Hey, Danny, here's your paper.

Saved you one.

Vince, you talk a lot of shite.

So that's your man?

That's him, Mr Mason,

a man of principle - the best.

Mmm. Seems a bit lost in himself.

Wouldn't you be - ten months

on strike, six months in jail?

Jail? For what?

Grievous bodily harm.

He hit a policeman in the head.

Where's the grief in that, eh?

But he's blacklisted now.

He's a marked man.

Even if the mine was to open

tomorrow, he wouldn't get a job.

I tell you, Mr Mason, he's all yours.

What makes you so sure?
