I just saw Ken's Loach's profoundly moving film "I, Daniel, Blake" which the Guardian's film reviewer calls the battle cry for the dispossessed.

I relate very personally to this film. Through sudden job losses and an unexpected health crisis, my husband and I landed in the 'system' when our children were young, so I know how it feels to sit across from a bureaucrat, praying inside for mercy. Thankfully, my prayer was answered, unlike Daniel Blake's. Having walked a mile in their shoes, I became a much stronger advocate for clients when I subsequently worked in the social service sector. And I was able to serve with greater compassion and understanding.

This film blows your heart open.
