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

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Moving and thought-provoking.

Thought provoking. An excellent insight to the lives of people on benefit. Disturbing, especially at this time of Government investigation of the benefits system.

A lot of tears shed. The audience was stunned to silence. In the mold of Cathy come home in the 60's
