Multi-award winner, including the Palme D’Or at Cannes, this masterpiece tells the story of a middle-aged carpenter navigating his way through the benefits system after suffering a heart attack, who befriends a single mother in similar circumstances.
“This powerful parable about the failings of the benefits system avoids irony and cynicism and treats its troubled characters with humour and humanity.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
