Jimmy's Hall is a 2014 British-Irish drama film directed by Ken Loach. The film tells the story of the deportation to the United States in 1933 of Jimmy Gralton, who led the Revolutionary Workers' Group, a precursor of the Irish Communist Party, in Leitrim. It stars Irish actor Barry Ward, along with Simone Kirby and Jim Norton. The title refers to a rural dance hall built by Gralton to expound his political views.
