KES, TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING and More Join Masters of Cinema
In the past few days our good friends at Eureka! Entertainment have announced a bevy of new titles, which they will be releasing in the coming months. Chief among these are new additions to their Masters of Cinema series, including Ken Loach’s seminal tale of working class adolescence in Northern England, Kes, which arrives on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK on 7 November.
