From the Director of I Daniel Blake (Ken Loach) comes another hard hitting dose of reality. Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. It’s hard work, and his wife’s job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.
Sorry We Missed You is a 2019 British-French-Belgian drama film directed by Ken Loach, written by Paul Laverty and produced by Rebecca O’Brien.
Principal photography began in September 2018 in the Newcastle area in north-east England. It was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. Despite having a broken arm in a sling, Loach appeared to promote the film at Cannes, where he said that it would be his final film to compete at the festival. At the 10th Magritte Awards, Sorry We Missed You received the Magritte Award for Best Foreign Film in Coproduction.
