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)

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

A must see. A real enditement on our Social Services. Brilliantly told.

Well received by all. Made one think!
