From the director of I, Daniel Blake
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.
“Sorry We Missed You is, simply, one of [Ken Loach’s] best films that links the personal and the political.” – The Film Stage
“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.” – Los Angeles Times
“The film’s tragedy is that no amount of love and goodwill can save us when the cards are so horribly stacked against us.” – Time Out
