Biographie

Loach was born in London, and studied philosophy at University College, London, intending to pursue a career in journalism. He joined the BBC where he worked as a researcher for Sue Lawley and Anne Robinson. He turned to directing in 1996 while working on the Granada TV current affairs programme World in Action. He went on to direct several episodes of Coronation Street in 2000, and subsequently directed episodes of Footballers' Wives, Bad Girls, Waterloo Road, Shameless, HolbyBlue and Hotel Babylon.

His first feature film Oranges and Sunshine was released on 1 April 2011. The film starred Emily Watson as Margaret Humphreys, the social worker who exposed the scandal of child migration. It co-starred Hugo Weaving and David Wenham.

Work on a second film collaboration, Kingsway, with Rona Munro, is reportedly underway.

In 2012, Loach directed Life of Crime, a thriller written by Declan Croghan. It centered around a young police officer's obsession with the killer of a young girl, who she meets in her first few days in the job. Hayley Atwell took the lead part, supported by Richard Coyle and Con O'Neill. It transmitted on ITV to positive reviews in May 2013.

Margaret Humphreys est une assistante sociale de Nottingham qui découvre et révèle le scandale des Home Children, un programme gouvernemental ayant pour but d'envoyer dans les pays du Commonwealth, notamment l'Australie et le Canada, des milliers d'enfants britanniques pauvres. Ces enfants déportés, à qui on avait promis « des oranges et du soleil », étaient plutôt condamnés à un travail harassant et à une vie dure dans des institutions comme Keaney College, à Bindoon en Australie-Occidentale.
