Screen Cannes Jury Grid 2016 D4

On day two of Screen’s Jury Grid at the 69th Cannes Film Festival, new entries Slack Bay and I, Daniel Blake attracted mixed scores from Screen’s critics.

Both films clocked a four-star rating apiece, as well as a ‘no rating’ X - the lowest available.

Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake attracted the higher average score, 2.4, particularly impressing the UK’s Nick James. However, it failed to impress France’s Julien Gester and Didier Peron, who awarded it the lowest score.

Bruno Dumont’s Slack Bay, which scored 2.1, impressed France’s Michel Ciment but tanked with the US’ Manohla Dargis.

Cristi Piui’s Sieranevada continues to reign top with a strong score of 3.
