Cannes Palme d’Or Winner ‘I, Daniel Blake’ Gets Oscar Season Release

30 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sundance Selects has set Ken Loach’s Palme d’Or winner “I, Daniel Blake” for a Dec. 23 limited release with a multi-city expansion to follow, Variety has learned.

The film premiered in Competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in May, and ultimately claimed its top prize. It marked the second Palme d’Or of Loach’s career after 2006’s “The Wind That Shakes the Barley,” making him one of just eight filmmakers to have won the prestigious honor twice.

“I, Daniel Blake” stars Dave Johns as the eponymous Blake, a middle-aged carpenter who requires state welfare after he suffers a heart attack and nearly falls from a scaffold. He’s joined by Katie (Hayley Squires), a single mother caught in similarly dire straights. Variety critic Owen Gleiberman called it “a work of scalding and moving relevance” in his Cannes review.

Rosario Dawson has joined Epix’s upcoming documentary series “America Divided.” Dawson will be featured as a correspondent in a segment about the water crisis in Flint, Mich. Dawson will profile the citizen scientists who first identified the existence of lead in the city’s water supply.

Executive produced by Norman Lear, Shonda Rhimes and Common, “America Divided” is a four-and-a-half-hour series that follows high-profile correspondents exploring subjects related to inequality and their own personal backgrounds. Among the correspondents are Lear, Common, America Ferrera, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Poehler, Peter Sarsgaard and Jesse Williams.

Solly Granatstein (“Years Of Living Dangerously,” “60 Minutes”), Lucian Read (“Years of Living Dangerously,” 99%), Richard Rowley (Dirty Wars, “Years of Living Dangerously”), Jon Kamen (The Fog of War, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory), Justin Wilkes (What Happened, Miss Simone?, Under African Skies) and Dave O’Connor (Whitey: The United States v. James J. Bulger, You Don’t Know Bo) also serve as executive producers on the series. Co-executive producers are Nicole Dow and Derek Dudley (Freedom Road Productions), and Brent Miller (“Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You”).
