In the presence of: Debbie Honeywood, Kris Hitchen

Ken Loach's family drama showcases how impossibly high work pressure can lead to financial ruin for families and individuals alike. Ricky, a father of two, starts a new job as a delivery driver. But soon the long and tiresome work hours start to take their toll on Ricky's health and relationships. This film, a portrayal of the bankruptcy of Europe, offered a stage to working class, amateur actors.

Plus Parcours: the screening on 18 October will have an introduction by Roel Van Bambost. After the screening, you can also get an illy coffee in the VIP area upon presentation of your Plus Parcours ticket.
