I, Daniel Blake (15)

Director Ken Loach. Drama

A 59 year old carpenter recovering from a heart attack, befriends a single mum and her two kids as they navigate their way through the kafkaesque impersonal benefits system. With equal amounts of humour, warmth and despair. Heartfelt and emotional until the end.

Starring Dave Johns, Hayley Squires, Sharon Percy

Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A powerful and humbling film.

Funny, sad, hard hitting, poignant, thought-provoking , frustrating. A round of applause at the end which is unusual for a non-barrel of laughs film.

A reality check for Britain. Heart breaking but with wonderful examples of humanity in hard, hard times.
