Ken Loach may be 83 but he is still just as perceptive and sharp as ever. After the brilliance of I, Daniel Blake he has come up with yet another masterpiece of social realism. He tells it like it is.
This film highlights the real effect of ten years of Tory austerity and policy. It follows a good hardworking family as they try to cope with the gig economy and find themselves digging further into a hole.
The wife is a carer, working all hours, trying to give care to elderly people.
The husband has been working in the building trade but there is no work. He tries to take up in a franchise delivering parcels. Little does he know of the pitfalls. He too finds himself working round the clock to become deeper in debt.
The two children are victims. They are having to bring themselves up.
They are all the victims of unscrupulous profiteers who are looking to maximise their profits.
This is a heartbreaking film of social realism. It portrays exactly what is wrong with Britain after ten years of Tory greed. A film that should be compulsory viewing for all voters. Tory MPs should be strapped down and forced to watch the graphic results of the economy they have set up. The rich get richer and the rest of us have to work ourselves silly for the scraps!
I came out from this film inspired to make things better.
