Ken Loach returns with another Palme d'Or nominated look at the cost of economic isolation in modern Britain.

Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. It's hard work, and his wife's job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.

The I, Daniel Blake director raises his game yet further with this gut-wrenching tale of a delivery worker driven to the brink - ★★★★★ The Guardian

The film's tragedy is that no amount of love and goodwill can save us when the cards are so horribly stacked against us - ★★★★ Time Out
