Film On Sunday: I, Daniel Blake

Sunday, 01 October 2017 - Presented by: Film On Sunday

After a heart attack at 59 years old, a carpenter faces an impenetrable jungle of regulations when he attempts to claim benefits. A searing indictment of the system and its effects on both claimants and the staff who have to administer them. The human tragedies depicted reflect the director's humanity and his skill at avoiding political cliches whilst leavening the tragic with black humour.
