Newly widowed Newcastle joiner Daniel (Johns) has worked all his life, but when his doctor tells him that his heart condition means he can't work, the welfare system disagrees. Familiar territory for Loach and screenwriter Laverty but despite unapologetic heartstring-tugging, the subject – the system's intrinsic cruelty and unfairness – is sadly more relevant than ever.

- Cast: Madina Nalwanga, David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong'o
Biopic of Phiona Mutesi (Nalwanga), a girl from the slums of Katwe, Uganda, who turned out to have a genius for chess. Confidently heartwarming stuff, if a little predictable, with a wonderfully engrossing performance from Nalwanga and classy support from Oyelowo as Phiona's coach and Nyong'o as her mother.
