With the screening of his latest film next month here’s a chance to catch up with Ken Loach’s Cannes winning film about a middle-aged man in the North East who, after a near-fatal heart attack, finds himself in a Catch 22 situation when denied sickness benefit. A stark and shocking vision of a life on the edge, told with passion and directness, this is a film with a fierce, simple dignity.
