Sorry We Missed You

Panorama | Special Presentations

The "Uberized" economy and its iniquities come in for a shellacking in Ken Loach’s latest cri de coeur, a social drama that many critics have said is even better than his Palme d’Or-winning previous work, I, Daniel Blake. Like that film, this one was written by Loach’s frequent collaborator Paul Laverty, and the two of them again show, with passion and intelligence, the tragic, logical consequences of unfettered capitalism.

Ricky (Kris Hitchen), a former construction worker laid-off after the 2008 financial crisis and under-employed ever since, is in dire need of a job to help support his wife Abbie (Debbie Honeywood), a contract nurse and in-home caregiver, and their two kids. Paying too much heed to one of his mates, the affable Ricky convinces himself that the way out of his family’s financial misery is to become a no-benefits, no-overtime freelance driver for a big delivery company. With great empathy and an abundance of well-researched detail, Loach and his fine cast show how Ricky’s dream turns into a nightmare.

"Superb… It’s fierce, open and angry, unironised and unadorned, about a vital contemporary issue whose implications you somehow don’t hear on the news." - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
