Member Exclusive: Sorry We Missed You
Loach and Laverty’s understandably angry film about life in Britain’s gig economy is deeply moving and terribly timely.
Dir Ken Loach
With Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone, Katie Proctor
An eOne release
Ken Loach’s latest look at life in today’s Britain is a fine successor to I, Daniel Blake. Again written by Paul Laverty and set in Newcastle, Sorry We Missed You centres on former labourer Ricky, in-home carer Abbie and their two kids, Seb and Lisa Jane. Ricky thinks his new ‘self-employed’ status, driving for a big delivery company, will be an end to debt – but are there enough hours in the day for Ricky and Abbie to get their work done, let alone function as a family? Understandably angered by how ordinary lives are affected by the gig economy, Loach and Laverty have created a film that is beautifully crafted and performed, deeply moving and all too timely.
