'0r for the social realist drama i, daniel blake. having previously claimed the top prize with the wind that shakes the barley, ken loach, who turned 80 this year, won the judges over once again with his blistering tale of a newcastle joiner recovering from a heart attack who finds himself on the wrong end of a bureaucratic benefit system. superbly scripted by paul lafferty, with outstanding performances by davejohns and hayley squires, i, daniel blake is powerful and impassioned film—making. no wonder bothjohns and squires were honoured with trophies at the recent british independent film awards. what i gather now is the decision—maker, the decision—maker's gonna be sending you a letter through the post. you're gonna have to wait for that. my kids have to start school tomorrow, i've got about 12 quid in me purse. all because you can't just calm down and listen to people when they talk, you all have to do this. you know what, i've listened to you, you've created a scene. no mate, if i was going to create a scene, you'd know about it. trust me. you need to leave the building.
