Interview with Dave Johns and Ken Loach

Daniel Blake, 59, has worked as a joiner most of his life in Newcastle. Now, after a heart attack and nearly falling from a scaffold, he needs help from the State for the first time in his life.

I, Daniel Blake is the riveting new film from director Ken Loach which has sent shockwaves through the UK about the way the state helps for those in needs.

In the film, Dave Johns plays Daniel Blake.


He crosses paths with a single mother Katie (played by Hayley Squires) and her two young children, Daisy and Dylan. Katie’s only chance to escape a one-roomed homeless hostel in London has been to accept a flat in a city she doesn’t know some 300 miles away.

Daniel and Katie find themselves in no-man’s land caught on the barbed wire of welfare bureaucracy as played out against the rhetoric of ‘striver and skiver’ in modern day Britain.

60th BFI London Film Festival: Trolls Review

60th BFI London Film Festival: Trolls Review

The team behind Trolls have a solid track record – with films such as Shrek and Madagascar, you can’t help but feel that DreamWorks finally have a franchise which can threaten the Minions.

A highly-recognisable voice cast, Trolls follows Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) as they go on a quest to save their troll friends from the Bergens, a civilisation who believe that happiness only comes from eating trolls.

As far as animated films go, Trolls is highly recognisable – but, unlike others, the feel-good factor plays in its favour and it knows its audience. The fun-loving, singing, dancing and hugging trolls are less annoying and more relatable than their Despicable counter-parts and, whilst it’s still predictable, the plot has many more twists and is much more original than most recent animated films.

The film also includes covers of songs recognisable for the whole family – such as Simon & Garfunkel’s The Sound of Silence, Lionel Richie’s Hello amongst others. And, as difficult as it is to remember the connection, Justin Timberlake’s original Can’t Stop The Feeling feels right at home at the end of the film.

Trolls doesn’t take itself too seriously, and has the potential to become a franchise. Feel-good, doesn’t take itself too seriously and all together: FUN.
