Poor Cow

Director Ken Loach

A young mother seeks - and finds - temporary blissful escape from the dreary treadmill existence between the pram and the kitchen stove. While her husband is serving a prison sentence she meets an uncomplicated young man who also happens to be a crook. For a while, this young woman's life hangs on a pendulum between two men; the husband she has ceased to love and the man with whom she finds her first glimpse of happiness. Eventually she has to compromise between her idyllic reminiscences of the past and dreams of the future, through her attachment to her infant son.
