    It's yer man that made I, Daniel Blake, which I thought was good. What I'm wondering is, despite my efforts to Google, is anyone aware of anywhere that you can watch this when it comes out in ye olde cinema?

    I can see Irish Film Institute appear in Google Searches but surely there must be a few more than that carrying it?

    Cheers.

    Also playing in the Lighthouse and has a run in Triskel, Cork in a few weeks. That’s all I could see from a quick gander, but there could be others!

    Actually preferred the film to I, Daniel Blake - but I struggle to explain exactly why as is a very similar film! I perhaps think there’s a newness to the material... I mean, IDB had strong contemporary setting, but this I think really articulates a lot of the concerns with the gig economy in a way that seems additionally urgent. But overall it’s almost precisely what you’d expect: compassionate, political and polemical filmmaking from people who know precisely what they’re doing.

    I saw I, Daniel Blake, and this looks even more of a riotous, uplifting joyfest. He's a good film maker, and the topics are important, but you wouldn't want to go seem them if you're feeling low.

    It is a very tough film, as it is like watching a documentary about a young working family (who could well be my own friends, relatives or neighbours) struggling to survive in the Zero Hours economy.

    A companion to "I, Daniel Blake", which was also about ordinary people struggling to survive.

    Christ almighty this was bleak. He could have told the same story without being so unrelentingly bleak. It almost crossed over to farcically bleak.

    So, you’re saying it was bleak?
