Winner of the prestigious Palme d’Or, the much awaited movie “I Daniel Blake” opens today at Luna Palace cinemas in Perth.
Acclaimed British film director Ken Loach (of Jimmy’s Hall, The Angels’ Share, The Wind That Shakes the Barley) and writer Paul Laverty have struck a chord as audiences around the world have resonated strongly with the movie in its fight for the underdog.
The story revolves around the main character Daniel Blake, a carpenter forced to stop work due to a heart condition, who finds himself thrown into the world of the social services system to seek assistance.
