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.

Absolutely deserving of its Awards. In the latter half of the film you could "hear a pin drop". Many unbelieving that this could be near the truth - and others reassuring them that it is true to life. Brilliant and thought-provoking. But then it's Ken Loach.

This is a film everyone should see! We really need an all party look at how people are treated who need help when they fall on hard times.
