Told strictly from the point of view of the desperate, courageous children every encounter becomes fraught with tension as we see the many different ways the strong - border police, human traffickers, kidnappers and drug lords - prey on the weak. Sticking to Loach's gritty realist style using improvisational techniques and largely non-professional actors, The Golden Dream is a tough, absorbing, suspenseful drama that explores the lengths people will go in search of a better life.
"...a very substantial movie, with great compassion and urgency." Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
