I, Daniel Blake (15)

Venue: Diss High School

Directed by Ken Loach, UK, 2016, 100 mins

With Dave Johns, Haley Squires, Sharon Percy

 A 59-year-old carpenter (Dave Johns) recovering from a heart attack, befriends a single mum and her two kids as they find themselves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy now played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain. With equal amounts of humour, warmth and despair I, Daniel Blake is heartfelt and emotional until the end.

‘Ken Loach crafts a Cathy Come Home for the 21st century that resonates long after you leave the cinema.’
Mark Kermode, The Guardian
