I, Daniel Blake
Fully deserved for the heartbreaking and heartwarming tale looking at the benefits system in the UK. Set in Newcastle and it really is powerful and hopefully it can be used to actually help the people who are screwed over by the system!
Terry Doolittle works for a bank that communicates via computer with clients from around the world. One day she receives a very strange message and when she decodes it ends up trying to help a British spy!
As much as I love La La Land, I really do want to see BAFTA really honour I, Daniel Blake as thought it was a remarkable film. (Even if they did snub Dave Johns for the leading role)
