This was undoubtedly one of our favourite film from last year and deservedly won director Ken Loach his second Palme D’or award at Cannes and BAFTA’s Outstanding British Film award.
Starring Dave Johns as the title character, a carpenter who has been off work due to a heart attack and is keen to return to get back to work only to find the system that he has paid into for years now unwilling to support him. As he struggles to get help he meets single mother Katie who is trying to keep a roof over her head and feed her two young children. Both find themselves in no man’s land battling against a system seemingly determined to grind them down further.
Causing much controversy amongst the Daily Mail. Tory MP’s and writers like Toby Young this is a searing indictment on the welfare system and has some incredibly moving scenes perhaps none more so than a scene in a food bank. A film that is in turn upsetting and anger inducing this really is a must see film.
