Sorry We Missed You
The much awarded British director Ken Loach has become a preeminent chronicler of the left behind. Set in Newcastle, his new film centers on Ricky, a laborer who brags about never going on the dole and hopes to become his own boss—and afford a house for his family—by signing up as a freelance delivery driver. But his heavy schedule combined with that of his compassionate social worker wife who can’t walk away from needy clients causes havoc in the lives of their two children. Loach is a favorite at Mostly British and we are pleased to follow his Cannes award-winning “I, Daniel Blake” with his latest compassionate look at the struggling working class.
