Film Night: I, Daniel Blake

I Daniel Blake

Somerset Moviola and the Nunney Village Hall Committee present I, Daniel Blake, on Friday 13 January at Nunney village hall.

I Daniel BlakeI, Daniel Blake is a 2016 British-French drama film directed by Ken Loach and written by Loach’s frequent collaborator Paul Laverty. The film stars Dave Johns, Hayley Squires, Dylan McKiernan, and Briana Shann.

It won the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and the Prix du public at the 2016 Locarno International Film Festival.

The film features great debut performances. David Johns plays a middle-aged Geordie carpenter who, following an injury, falls foul of our benefits bureaucracy. Hayley Squires plays a single mum who has to move to the north east from London. The two become friends.

This controversial film presents a critical view of the sometimes heartless, rule-bound nature of our welfare system – but the warmth and wit of these authentic characters will make you smile, and their frustrations with the system and ultimate sadness may well make you cry.

A most thought-provoking film – try not to miss it.
