A good movie at a nice price in my view.

The closest seems to be at Base

IMDB Rating of 7.9 imdb.com/tit…92/

Synopsis
Ken Loach directs this drama that follows a 59-year-old joiner as he tries to navigate the British benefits system. In the North-East of England, widower Daniel Blake (Dave Johns) 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 (Hayley Squires) whose financial problems mean she is being forced out of her home in London along with her two kids Dylan and Daisy (Dylan McKiernan and Briana Shann).

Official Trailer

Hope it helps someone.

Might as well file this under documentary.
Would be a great addition to the bookshelf of some Guardian reader somewhere in Islington.
What is worse in my opinion, is disgusting inviduals that treat people on welfare like something that goes in the bin, as they have been brainwashed into thinking the countries problems are caused by people on welfare using money, that could be spent on schools, hospitals etc,, like your life would be better if we get rid if the peasants claiming,,,, it's
how it's working now,, turn everyone against themselves, and let's be honest, if we got rid of the so called riff-raff, you still wouldn't get a penny, that's how ridiculous it is,, it's actually embarrassing and disgusting with the level of humility they have,what actually happened in there life to think such things, defies belief.

I watched this once / could not bring myself to watch it again (it really did leave me in horror about our cruel system)
Brilliant movie that makes my cry at its denouement
Sounds bloody depressing.
Brilliant film.

Fantastic film

Fantastic film. Shows the true effect of our policies and systems, and how the decision makers have absolutely zero clue about how the real world works.
Its been this price since Zoom Day on Friday. Lots of great offers missed on here.

Very sad film, but all too true in these cruel times
It's a work of fiction

I don't mean to spoil the film for people but this film is inherently political, thus any discussion of the film here is also likely to be.

Therefore it's ridiculous HotUKDeals are preventing people from talking about it.

This is less a film than a documentary.

The only piece that's real is that some guy sprayed some grafiti on a job centre and later died of a heart attack.
The rest is fiction

Aside from the way the DWP and Job Centre treat people.
Aside form the way the disabled are treated as 3rd class citizen.
About how he lost his Motability car because the Capita PIP assessor lied and wrote the complete opposite on a form to what they were told.

Yeah, mostly fiction, but wait, that last one is me, oh no.

They could have portrayed much worse examples of how callous the DWP can be. For example, numerous people have died as a direct result of being sanctioned, David Clapson being the first one that springs to mind. He died alone of diabetic ketoacidosis, as he was unable to afford electricity to keep his insulin stored in the fridge. He also couldn't afford to eat.

This is a very important film. I can't say I'd ever want to see it again and don't expect anyone else will either, but if you haven't seen it you should - especially the people who seem to go on about the drain that people on benefits place on the system. Last year it was found that the DWP have defrauded low income (mainly disabled people) out of over £2,000,000,000. That's right, over £2bn. Even if you are a person that doesn't believe in disabled people claiming benefits, that's how much was stolen of tax payers money. Who are the real criminals?

Well said. It's so tragic
Fantastic film. Shows the true effect of our little Britain mentality.
Perfect of example of someone who needs their hand holding and is incapable of making an effort or willing to learn.


Very over exagerated and poor viewing.
I got confused thinking this deal was either for a Daniel Johnston or James Blake blu ray

Not the 4k stuff though. I can't remember a criterion one either.
I haven’t seen this but I work in cardiology and the biggest worry for people is finances. Its fine if you are retired but many people are of working age; they cant pay their mortgage, one person had to choose between food and bus fare to hospital appointments, using food banks.

Thought you meant lots of other £4 films missed. But you're right, I haven't seen a 4K or Criterion post.

I guess you've never been unemployed then, i was 20 years ago and i remember how those that worked in those places treated people. only watched the trailer and it comes across very realistic
It's a great movie!

Okay let's examine some of the features in detail to see if they're an accurate representation of reality

SPOILER ALERT

1: Man is assessed for ESA and asked various questions about daily activities (very accurate)
2: Even though man has heart attack he's is found fit for work because of his answers (plenty of real world examples of this)
3: Man asks whether the assessor is medically qualified (historically, many haven't been)
4: A woman is relocated hundreds of miles from home because the council has a limited amount of accommodation(very accurate)
5: Sick man is appeals but is forced to claim JSA because he failed the ESA WCA asssessment
6: Sick man is forced to look for work or be sanctioned
7: Man is forced to use a computer (This is an absolute requirement of claiming Universal Credit)
8: Sick man is sanctioned for creating a scene in the Job Centre (happens quite a lot)
9: Woman is forced into prostitution to suppport her kids because of how long her claim is taking (Often takes more than 5 weeks)
10: Man dies of heart attack because of the strain this process is having on his body (more than 17,000 people have died waiting for benefit assessments)
As an adult it's probably the scariest horror film I've watched I years.

He he, yes nice one, I haven't caught up with the world yet,
I saw this at the cinema years ago it's a powerful film that shows how screwed up the benefits system can be. Before the haters come along I know lots of people play the system which is very wrong, I am just saying if a person is really genuine like the charature in this film portrays in can be a real with bureaucracy. I am sure you know what I am trying to say. Heat from me for a good price for a great film
This is basically the same story that lead to my Dad's death. If you doubt cases like this exist I'm happy to show you the unsuccessful10 year battle I had with the DWP to try and save his life.
