“A 59 year old carpenter recovering from a heart attack befriends a single mother and her two kids as they navigate their way through the impersonal, Kafkaesque benefits system. With equal amounts of humor, warmth and despair, the journey is heartfelt and emotional until the end. ”
Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the latest from legendary director Ken Loach is a gripping, human tale about the impact one man can make. At the Cannes premiere the director and his team were greeted with a 15 minute standing ovation after the official screening of the movie.
“What makes the pain of this film bearable is Daniel’s unquenchable decency, courage and perseverance.” Stephen Holden, The NY Times.
