I, Daniel Blake (The Criterion Collection)(2016) Blu-ray

Drama following a 59-year-old carpenter as he tries to navigate the British welfare system. In the North-East of England, widower Daniel Blake is forced to stop working when he is taken ill with heart disease and so applies for Employment and Support Allowance from the Government. But his life is further thrown into disarray when his benefits are suddenly taken away from him and he is forced to jump through the many hoops of the bureaucratic system to get them back. During this time, he meets the similarly-troubled single mother Katie, whose financial problems mean she is being forced out of her home in London along with her two children, Dylan and Daisy.
