Editorial Reviews

With a central trope that recalls Jerzy Skolimowski's Moonlighting (1982), Palme d'Or winner Ken Loach's ironically titled social-consciousness drama It's a Free World... dissects the problem of exploited immigrant labor from the perspective of one taking advantage. Actress Kierston Wareing stars as Angie, a native of London's East End who works for a shady and sketchy employment agency that predominantly hires illegal Eastern European immigrants. Unceremoniously fired from that outfit, she cooks up the scheme of establishing her own such agency with the help of a roommate, Rose (Juliet Ellis); Angie begins scouting the local factories to recruit cheap labor, while Rose puts up a website and mission statement to give the operation a distinct veneer of class and idealism. As Angie flaunts her body and unabashedly uses the lure of sex to attract new clients and business, she ignorantly fails to acknowledge warnings that she may be headed for dangerous waters. Meanwhile, family problems erupt when Angie's extremely dysfunctional and misguided 11-year-old son, Jamie (Joe Siffleet), gets in trouble for severely beating a classmate, and Angie's unionist father grows utterly horrified when he learns of his daughter's activities. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide

This is a powerful eye opener of a film. Set in contemporary England, this film lays bare migrant worker situation in Britain from the angle of someone running a twilight employment agency. It powerfully lays out the background to the recent influx of migrant workers to Britain, and the quality of the writing, direction, and character portrayal will leave many speechless, and the film over all, will leave many viewers feeling challenged and needing to think.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Hiram Gomez Pardo HALL OF FAME on September 2, 2011
Format: DVD
Anjie is a proactive and enterprising woman, who works at an employment agency. Suddenly she is involved which has passed the row of unemployed too.

Without falling into a depression or immutable decides to open her own account a small placement agency because she knows by heart the details of how it works the whole mechanism.

So, she assumes the tremendous challenges that this presents and soon the money flows, but as we know, there is no free lunch, and soon the complex and multiple problems of this activity began to emerge.

Tense, realistic and ambitious film that explores an item apparently ignored by many countries at the moment to undertake a similar project.

Watch it because this issue of relevant actuality, will be at over the years, a time bomb whose legal consequences will affect the diplomatic scene between neighboring nations as well as the constant and daily human tide from Africa and Asia to Europe or from Mexico to USA.

You can not afford to ignore this ambitious film is an undeniable reality expressly ignored for unexplained reasons.
