I, Daniel Blake

"If you want reality -- if you want an idea, for one, as to how the British people could become so despairing that they would do something as drastic as vote to leave the European Union -- see I, Daniel Blake." - The Atlantic

Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival & BAFTA 2017 Winner for Best British Film, the latest from legendary director Ken Loach is a gripping, human tale about the impact one man can make. Gruff but goodhearted, Daniel Blake (Dave Johns) is a man out of time: a widowed woodworker who's never owned a computer, he lives according to his own common sense moral code. But after a heart attack leaves him unable to work and the state welfare system fails him, the stubbornly self-reliant Daniel must stand up and fight for his dignity, leading a one-man crusade for compassion that will transform the lives of a struggling single mother (Hayley Squires) and her two children. Graced with humour and heart, I, Daniel Blake is a moving, much-needed reminder of the power of empathy from one of the world's greatest living filmmakers.

"This new Ken Loach landmark sums up everything that has kept his muckraking motor running for decades. An old-school social realist, the 80-year-old filmmaker again speaks up for the exploited lower classes." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
