Film review “I Daniel Blake”.

sketch-1546727278682

A film came out a couple of years ago called “I Daniel Blake”. It’s about a man who has had a serious heart attack and who is trying to get a sickness allowance because he is too ill to work. But because the state now seems determined to persecute those who need benefits he is constantly stopped from getting what he needs. He ends up in an impossible position where he is fighting the system. He meets various other people with similar problems. It is a sad reflection on todays society that people are allowed to get into this situation. In one scene he and a young single mother he befriends have to visit a food bank to survive. The young woman starts eating food from a can because she hasn’t eaten for days. The film takes a close look into poverty and deprivation in Britain today. I think it’s important that films like this are available so that people see the reality of the system today.
