My Name is Joe (UK, 1998). 105' 25/11/2013

This drama film was directed by Kean Loach. The film stars Peter Mullan as Joe Kavanagh, an unemployed recovering alcoholic in Glasgow who meets and falls in love with a health visitor. Davic McKay plays his troubled friend Liam. The film's title is a reference to the ritualised greeting performed in Alcoholics Anonymous meetins, as potrayed in the film's opening scene.

The film was well praised. "My name is Joe is a passionate, compassionate and magnificently acted film". Phillip French. The Guardian. 8/11/1998.
