Sorry We Missed You (15)

Director Ken Loach. Drama.


Ken Loach returns to the milieu of 2016’s I, Daniel Blake with the fierce, vital Sorry We Missed You, supported by his longtime collaborators, screenwriter Paul Laverty and producer Rebecca O’Brien. Following its premiere at Cannes (where it received rave reviews), it’s a passionate indictment of Tory austerity and the absurdities and cruelties of the gig economy. Ricky (Kris Hitchen) lost his building work and mortgage after the 2008 financial crash. Now renting with his wife Abbie (Debbie Honeywood), a contract nurse and carer and their kids, he is unable to pass up a job driving for a delivery company. But it turns out the role is horribly exploitative, and with his wife facing similar pressures in her own job, their family life becomes more and more toxic. Rigorously researched via off-the-record interviews, Sorry We Missed You depicts the ruinous human cost of zerohours contracts with gut-wrenching honesty and integrity. A heartbreaking and incendiary film, it’s a searing critique of zero hours Britain.

Starring Debbie Honeywood, Kris Hitchen, Rhys Stone
