Gritty but compulsive
I left the cinema with a lot to think about after viewing this film. A gritty and realistic drama portraying the processes and outcomes of claimants caught up in today’s benefit system, sometimes with dreadful outcomes.
Every public servant, politician and voluntary sector worker should be expected to watch this film. A lot of it is not easy viewing, and certainly not suitable for a fun night out, but the message it gives about today’s society is compelling.
I think a message should be included on-screen but before the credits suggesting people contact the Citizens’ Advice Bureau if they are experiencing any of the issues raised in the film.
this is my first review of a film so much so that i felt compelled to join IMDb to leave this review. i will keep it plain and simple for my first.
i have just watched this film and shed tears which is not good for a 44yr old man who rarely admits to this!
This film is just stunningly simple yet stunningly amazing in every aspect from the acting to the directing to the story, absolutely beautiful. the story is so true and current to what is happening right now to this over populated overstretched island that the politicians need to sit up right now and watch this film.
