Sorry We Missed You
The honesty and integrity of the two lead performances are astonishing in Ken Loach’s passionate exploration of modern-day exploitation, as a cruel cycle of sanctions, debt and never-ending work drives one family to the brink. A blistering call to arms, this fiercely moving film was co-produced by UK-based BBC Films and Loach’s own production company, Sixteen Films.
After struggling to make ends meet since the 2008 financial crash, Ricky (Kris Hitchen) and his wife Abby (Debbie Honeywood) hope that his new job as a delivery driver will finally turn their situation around. With things not panning out as hoped, the film exposes the harsh realities of the UK’s gig economy as they get caught in a vicious cycle that has a devastating impact on their relationships and dignity.
