ODEON says...
‘I, Daniel Blake’ is the devastating story of a carpenter who’s just had a heart attack. Despite this, the Department for Work and Pensions have deemed him fit for work.

He’s too ill to find a job, but he can’t claim benefits because of their verdict. Forced to subsist on jobseeker’s allowance, he meets single mother Katie and her two children, who are also struggling with British bureaucracy. Forming a makeshift family, they struggle to cut through the red tape that threatens to engulf them.

An incendiary drama from firebrand director Ken Loach, ‘I, Daniel Blake’ won the Palme d’Or at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

I Daniel Blake

Reviewer: GinadhmDate: 2016-10-27

Exceptional portrayal of life in this country for all those who by reason of health are not able to work. There is the humour that keeps us going, and the heart break of the grinding pain caused by the stripping away of one's self respect. A must see.

Excellent and relevant. A movie for our times
