A 59-year-old carpenter recovering from a heart attack befriends a single mother and her two kids as they battle the impersonal, bureaucratic forces of the benefits system. British master Ken Loach won his second Palme d’Or at Cannes for this timely drama with equal amounts of humour, warmth and despair. “Loach is nothing if not a humanist, one who sees what should unite us all in times of duress, and this is arguably one of his best.” - Rolling Stone.
