Sorry We Missed You

Sorry We Missed You

From socially conscious director Ken Loach and longtime collaborator Paul Laverty (I, Daniel Blake) comes a wrenching portrait of a hardworking English couple sliding deeper into debt and despair, despite toiling in all-consuming jobs. Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. It's hard work, and his wife's job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.


Critical Notes

"As a stripped-down, minutely detailed portrait of the daily grind as back-breaking Sisyphean ordeal, Sorry We Missed You is engrossing and bluntly persuasive." - Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
