Black Jack, DVD



Ken Loach directs this adventure film based on the children's novel by Leon Garfield.

Set in mid-18th century Yorkshire, the film tells the tale of Black Jack (Jean Franval), a huge but gentle Frenchman who miraculously survives a hanging at the gallows in York and escapes into the countryside with two young companions he meets along the way, Tolly (Stephen Hirst) and asylum escapee Belle Carter (Louise Cooper).

There the trio of outcasts finally find a family of sorts in one another and end up joining a travelling carnival troupe.
