UNITED KINGDOM, France, Belgium | 100 minutes | 2019

At 83, Ken Loach’s sense of his times is sharper than ever. Sorry We Missed You, his latest feature, gives his trademark neorealism a new turn as it targets the gig economy. Central to this family drama is Ricky, a father, husband and serial odd-jobber forced to reinvent himself as a delivery driver for a Web-based corporation. Impeccably filmed and marked by excellent performances, this is Loach at his unflinching, gut-wrenching best: giving a voice to those who end up getting screwed by the technological change that generates astronomical profits for just a few.

"It’s fierce, open and angry, unironised and unadorned, about a vital contemporary issue whose implications you somehow don’t hear on the news." The Guardian
"This brilliant film will focus minds." The Guardian
