    Thumbs up I Daniel Blake

    Hi all has anyone watched this film, I Daniel Blake? OMG so true to life, I was quite a few of the characters at different points in my life. Did try and look to see if it was based on a true story, one said yes the other said no. Really good watch though.

    I know this is an old post, but I finally saw this film last night.
    It is the most realistic view of somebody trapped in the ESA cycle I have ever seen!
    So accurate in its representation of a failed system laid bare

    I had heard about the film but never got to see it first time around.

    You can now catch it on the BBC iPlayer.

    Very gritty, down to earth film about the Benefit System and it‘s failings. If you aren‘t computer literate it‘s a nightmare to access with tragic consequences.
