Retaining the creative team behind the Palme d’Or-winning I, Daniel Blake, director Ken Loach, producer Rebecca O’Brien and writer Paul Laverty focus on a working-class family in Newcastle who are struggling to make ends meet and imploding as a unit under a regime ruled by zero hours contracts. A film of fierce passion and ire, it again features a cavalcade of tremendously naturalistic performers and is leavened by moments of sparky humour.
