I, Daniel Blake

I, Daniel Blake

Ken Loach marks his 50 years as a filmmaker and picked up his second Palme d’Or with this impassioned, angry and heartfelt drama about day-to-day life in austerity Britain.

Daniel Blake is a widower who has worked as a joiner most of his life, but now following a heart attack seeks income support. But an unqualified health adviser for the government states otherwise and Daniel finds himself caught in a bureaucratic trap. In the job centre he meets single mother, Katie who has been exiled from her hometown and together the two form an unlikely alliance.
