A new trailer has arrived online for director Ken Loach’s Palme d’Or award winning drama I, Daniel Blake; take a look below after the official synopsis…
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 one-roomed 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.
I, Daniel Blake is set for release on October 21st in the UK and features a cast that includes Dave Johns, Hayley Squires, Dylan McKiernan and Briana Shann.
