I, Daniel Blake is the latest film to hit the screen from veteran director Ken Loach.
Stand-up comic Dave Johns plays Daniel Blake, a widower in Newcastle who has just had a near-fatal heart attack – but can’t get work or benefits.
Shocking scenes show Blake desperately trying to explain the urgency of his case to stern bureaucrats obsessed with box-ticking, the rules and regulations. Hayley Squires is Katie, a single mum who has been relocated to a council flat in the North East from London (because it’s cheaper) and whom Blake befriends. Over time, he becomes a grandfatherly figure to her two young children.
The film will start at 7.30pm at the Playhouse Cinema, Louth.
