Sorry We Missed You
Ken Loach returns to 2016 with a searing critique of zero hours Britain. It’s a passionate indictment of Tory austerity and the absurdities and cruelties of the gig economy. Ricky lost his building work and mortgage after the 2008 financial crash. Now renting with his wife Abbie, a contract nurse and carer and their kids, he is unable to pass up a job driving for a delivery company. But it turns out the role is horribly exploitative, and with his wife facing similar pressures in her own job, their family life becomes more and more toxic.
