Though we’re convinced that Amazon don’t even knock on the door and MyHermes use anything marked ‘fragile’ as an excuse to practice their drop kicking skills and let’s not forget the seasonal staff employed at Christmas by the Post Office who regard the whole of the holidays as one long lucky dip. But it’s equally annoying finding that irritating card with the legend, ‘Sorry We Missed You’ on your door mat when you’ve been in all day. But we digress because from director Ken Loach, writer Paul Laverty and the award-winning team behind I, DANIEL BLAKE, comes the SORRY WE MISSED YOU trailer – a powerful exploration of the contemporary world of work, the gig economy and the challenges faced by one family trying to hold it all together.
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.
Now though Ken Loach’s films have a streak of social realism that put many off his films also have a streak of all too recognizable humanity and humour that leavens the, at times, upsetting scenes or moments when you want to shout out at the all too believable injustice playing out on screen. It’s what made, “I, Daniel Blake‘ one of the best films of 2016 winning BAFTA’s and the Palme D’or for that year. We’re glad to say that the Sorry We Missed You trailer looks like another great film from the veteran director who is now 83 years old and has lost nothing of his rage at social injustice if this brand new trailer is anything to by
The film opens on November 1st 2019.
