From two-time Palme d'Or winner Ken Loach (The Wind That Shakes the Barley; I, Daniel Blake), Sorry We Missed You is a powerful exploration of the contemporary world of work and the challenges faced by one family trying to hold it all together. 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 realize 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.
