"An immediate classic" - The Times
A 59 year old carpenter recovering from a heart attack befriends a single mother and her two kids as they navigate their way through the kafkaesque impersonal benefits system. With equal amounts of humour, warmth and despair, this critically acclaimed drama is heartfelt and emotional until the end.
The film won the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the Prix du public at the 2016 Locarno International Film Festival, and the 2017 BAFTA for Outstanding British Film.
Ages 18 +
