British master Ken Loach (Jimmy’s Hall, The Angel’s Share) has addressed socio-economic issues in Britain and beyond through the working-class heroes who populate his films. He won his second Cannes Palme d’Or for this timely drama about an ailing handyman’s battle to survive after being denied health benefits. Waiting to sign on at the Job Centre, Daniel (Dave Johns) befriends Katie (Hayley Squires) a single mom who is also struggling to cope with the system. The director builds empathy for two downtrodden people – honest would-be workers fighting red tape while trying to steal a happy moment or two.
