I, Daniel Blake

Malta Independent - - CINEMA -

Daniel Blake (59) has worked as a joiner most of his life in New­cas­tle. Now, for the first time ever, he needs help from the State. He crosses paths with sin­gle mother Katie and her two young chil­dren, Daisy and Dy­lan. Katie’s only chance to es­cape a one­roomed home­less hos­tel in Lon­don has been to ac­cept a flat in a city she doesn’t know, some 300 miles away. Daniel and Katie find them­selves in no-man’s land, caught on the barbed wire of wel­fare bu­reau­cracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in mod­ern-day Bri­tain.
