Review of Love on the Dole for Sight & Sound


Set in a northern industrial town in the Great Depression, the 1941 film Love on the Dole is about economic hardship, the withdrawal of benefits, and the struggle for better conditions for the working classes. First screened almost 80 years ago, it definitely feels of it time – yet tackles issues that still feel urgent and relevant. I reviewed the new DVD release for the March issue of Sight & Sound – out now!
