How many people have watched Ken Loache's powerful film (above)? I am like Daniel Blake & wonder how many people on here can relate to the film? Those that don't know, 'Daniel Blake' 59, a carpenter, suffers a heart attack. The film , based on true facts, follows him on his quest for benefits. Without spoiling it, the film is both powerful and emotional. It even made me contact Ken Loach to congratulate him. The film has won best British film & continues to acclaim many tributes. Well, I am like Daniel Blake! I'm a self employed 61 year old builder. I haven't had any income for 6 weeks now, and been put on the sick for another 6 weeks. The only trouble is, I cannot claim any money at all and we are now living off our savings. Love to know if anybody else is suffering like I am?
