“The latest from celebrated British filmmaker Ken Loach (I, Daniel Blake), Sorry We Missed You is a captivating and compassionate portrait of a family who sacrifices nearly all they have for the uncertain promise of independence. Ricky is a former construction worker who lost his job and home in the 2008 financial crash. Eager to make a go at being his own boss, he takes a quasi-freelance delivery gig, though it means punishing hours, working under a ruthless manager, and making a substantial investment up front. Ricky convinces his wife, Abbie, a home-care nurse, to sell her car in order to buy the van he needs for the job. Complications mount as Ricky starts to discover the harsh realities of supposedly autonomous labor, his son Seb courts trouble in his new-found, semi-politicized vocation as a graffiti artist, and the family’s hopes of getting ahead seem only to drag them further behind.
Working from a rigorously researched script from his longtime collaborator Paul Laverty, Loach once again dissects larger social issues by focusing on the plight of a handful of precisely drawn characters. Even as the film’s social critique becomes more overt, Loach and Laverty never let us forget that the victims of corporate avarice are not statistics, but individuals fighting for what everyone deserves: dignity and fairness.” –TIFF
