Bullied at school and ignored and abused at home by his indifferent mother and older brother, Billy Casper (David Bradley), a 15-year-old working-class Yorkshire boy, tames and trains his pet kestrel falcon whom he names Kes. Helped and encouraged by his English teacher Mr. Farthing (Colin Welland) and his fellow students, Billy finally finds a positive purpose to his unhappy existence, until tragedy strikes.

Excellent movie! One of my favorites of the late 60's.
If you are not English you might need subtitles.

Great story based in truth. It will make you feel sad and happy at the same time. It is so inspirational to see someone triumph over their plight.
