Description
Legendary British director Ken Loach (“The Wind that Shakes the Barley”) won the Palme d’Or—the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival—for this luminous feature film about the impact one individual can have in an indifferent world. Self-reliant Daniel Blake, a 59-year-old carpenter in England, suddenly finds himself in need of government assistance after suffering a debilitating heart attack. But he quickly discovers that the dehumanizing welfare system is set up to deter people from receiving aid, rather than to help those in need. With the assistance of a young single mother he meets during his ordeal, Daniel attempts to stand up and fight the bureaucratic forces stifling his dignity. Brimming with deep humanity, warmth, and compassion—along with tender and true moments of sadness and fury—“I, Daniel Blake” is a triumphant social drama and one of the very best films in recent years.
