I Daniel Blake
NAME OF FILM: I DANIEL BLAKE
DIRECTOR(S): Ken Loach
STARRING: Dave Johns, Hayley Squires and Sharon Percy
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: 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 humor 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.
