The village community cinema, Haddenham Screen, is hosting
I, Daniel Blake (15) on Tuesday evening 28th February.
Directed by Ken Loach and starring Dave Johns, Hayley Squires, Sharon Percy.
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.
