British director Ken Loach has devoted much of his long and distinguished career to deeply humane sociorealist studies of working-class struggle; Sweet Sixteen won the Krzysztof Kieslowski Award for Best Feature Film at DFF25, and I, Daniel Blake (DFF39) earned him his second Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2016. But given the horror stories that have recently emerged about the mistreatment of independent contractors with companies like Amazon and Uber, his latest film may be his timeliest and hardest-hitting yet.
