Nominee · 2019 Palme d’Or · Cannes Film Festival 

From socially conscious director Ken Loach and longtime collaborator Paul Laverty comes the understandably angry film about life in Britain’s gig economy - at once deeply moving and incredibly timely. Ken Loach’s latest look at life in today’s Britain is a mighty successor to his 2016 Palme d’Or winning, 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?

Lauded with outstanding reviews internationally, and nominated for the Palme d’Or (The British helmer has won two Palmes d’Or (The Wind That Shakes the Barley in 2006 and I, Daniel Blake in 2016) and three Jury Prizes to boot), this tale is a stirring example of the honesty and humour for which the director is known best.

“It’s fierce, open and angry, un-ironised and unadorned, about a vital contemporary issue. Five stars.” – The Guardian
