I, Daniel Blake (2016) Cinema @ Solstice
Main Auditorium | Wed 15th March, 7:30pm | Tickets: €7.50 / €6
English / Cert: 15A/ 100 mins / Dir: Ken Loach
Dave Johns, best known as a stand-up comic, plays a Tyneside carpenter who, following a heart attack, is told to lay off work for a while. Following an unhappy encounter with a 'health professional', he is denied disability payments. He then encounters absurd logistical conundrums when applying for 'jobseeker’s allowance'. Extracting much black humour from the sheer lunacy of the regulations, when this film exercises its anger, the results are invariably skull-shaking. Other Loach films have shown this degree of fury. None have been quite so sad.
