The British working class is once again the empathetic subject of Ken Loach’s 2019 drama Sorry We Missed You, an intimate family drama that exposes the dark side of the so-called “gig economy.”

Ricky, a former laborer, and his home-attendant wife Abby—who lost their home in the 2008 financial crash—are desperate to get out of their economic distress. When an opportunity comes up for Ricky to work as his own boss as a delivery driver, they trade in their only asset, Abby’s car, for a shiny new white van and the dream that Ricky can work his way up to someday owning his own delivery franchise. But the couple find their lives are quickly pushed further to the edge by an unrelenting work schedule, a ruthless supervisor and the needs of their two teenage children.

Capturing the sacred moments that make a family as well as the acts of desperation they need to undertake to make it through each day, Sorry We Missed You proves itself to be a universal story is told with solid performances and a tight script by Loach’s long-time collaborator Paul Laverty.
