dir. Ken Loach – TIFF & NYFF – Sundance Selects

Winner of the prestigious Palme d’Or, the critically acclaimed drama about a man who falls ill to heart disease could be a dark horse for some Academy love.  Coming from 80-year-old director Ken Loach, “I, Daniel Blake” has the critics’ backing to make some noise this year.  Two more high-profile festivals are ahead.
