Winner of a Palme d'Or at Cannes and winner of the BAFTA Award for Outstanding British Film of the Year, I, DANIEL BLAKE is the latest masterpiece from legendary director Ken Loach.. Daniel Blake has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with a single mother Katie and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie's only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn't know, some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man's land, caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy.. "I, DANIEL BLAKE is a powerful return to form for Mr. Loach, the much-honored left-wing British filmmaker who is now 80 and is still in full command as a filmmaker and a social critic." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times. "In a world that seems to be getting worse with every passing minute, I, DANIEL BLAKE is a sobering but inspiring pleasure - easily one of the best films of the year." - Edward Douglas, New York Daily News
