Sorry We Missed You - DIFF

Sorry we missed you

Directed by KEN LOACH

Cannes Film Festival 2019: Official Selection | NT Premiere

Ricky, Abby and their two children live in Newcastle. They are a strong family who care for each other. Ricky has skipped from one labouring job to another while Abby, who loves her work, cares for old people. Despite working longer and harder they realise they will never have independence or their own home. It’s now or never; the app revolution offers Ricky a golden opportunity. He and Abby make a bet. She sells her car so Ricky can buy a shiny new van and become a freelance driver, with his own business at last. The modern world impinges on these four souls in the privacy of their kitchen; the future beckons.

“ 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

“ Another swipe at the miserable state of England, and those who press down on others to maintain the status quo. This is searing, raw and important filmmaking.”

Jo-Anne Titmarsh - HeyUGuys
