Is I, Daniel Blake on Netflix United States?
Yes! I, Daniel Blake (2016) is available on Netflix United States.
After having suffered a heart-attack, a 59-year-old carpenter must fight the bureaucratic forces of the system in order to receive Employment and Support Allowance. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and a 2017 BAFTA for Best British Film, the latest from legendary director Ken Loach is a gripping, human tale about the impact one man can make. Gruff but goodhearted, Daniel Blake (Dave Johns) is a man out of time: a widowed woodworker who's never owned a computer, he lives according to his own common sense moral code. But after a heart attack leaves him unable to work and the state welfare system fails him, the stubbornly self-reliant Daniel must stand up and fight for his dignity, leading a one-man crusade for compassion that will transform the lives of a struggling single mother (Hayley Squires) and her two children. Graced with humor and heart, I, Daniel Blake is a moving, much-needed reminder of the power of empathy from one of the world's greatest living filmmakers. While fighting for his welfare benefits following a job-ending heart attack, a widowed carpenter befriends a single mother in a similar plight.
