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.

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

Some of the men as well as the women came out at the end with tears in their eyes. A very thought provoking film with no hope in sight.
