My Name Is Joe's blend of comedy, social drama, love interest and tense thriller make for a more accessible movie than we'd normally expect from Loach. Recovering alcoholic Joe Kavanagh (Mullan) meets and falls in love with health visitor Sarah (Goodall), but his well-intentioned scheme to get a young friend out of the grip of a vicious drug dealer looks likely to backfire on everyone he cares for.
