A hard-up delivery driver and his wife struggle to get by in modern-day England in Ken Loach's follow-up to his Cannes winner I, DANIEL BLAKE.
Ricky, Abby and their two children live in Newcastle. Ricky has skipped from one labouring job to another while Abby, who loves her work, cares for the elderly. Despite working longer and harder than ever 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.
Ken Loach has made his cinematic mark telling the stories of England's working classes since his 1967 debut film POOR COW. He is deservedly one of the very few filmmakers who have won the Palme D'Or two times for THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY and I, DANIEL BLAKE. SORRY WE MISSED YOU continues that great social realist tradition and is the type of film that will stick with you long after the screen has gone dark.
