Trailer Watch: I, Daniel Blake, Ken Loach’s Palme d’Or Winner

The new film by British filmmaker Ken Loach, I, Daniel Blake won the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and now it’s got a trailer (above) in advance of its U.K. release on October 21.

The film stars Dave Johns as Daniel Blake, a 59-year-old in the North-East of England who falls ill and applies for unemployment benefits only to get caught in a mess of red tape. Along the way, he meets a single mother and her two children who are dealing with their own challenges.

Sundance Selects has U.S. rights to the film, but no release date has been set yet.
