I, Daniel Blake (2016) - Director: Ken Loach Script: Paul Laverty

  • Chris Goddard (a1)

Extract

This film is the story of Daniel Blake, a widowed 59-year-old carpenter. Daniel suffered a heart attack at work, on scaffolding, and nearly died. He has been told by his doctors that he is unfit for any strenuous work. The bureaucracy has decided, however, that as he can raise his arms, he should be spending 35 hours a week seeking work.
