Sorry We Missed You (2019)
Ken Loach (I, Daniel Blake) turns his directorial eye to another modern-day Britain issue; zero hour contracts.
Starring Kris Hitchen and Debbie Honeywood, ‘Sorry We Missed You’ is the story of Ricky and his family, who have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash.
An opportunity for Ricky to wrestle back some independence appears with the chance to run a franchise as a self employed delivery driver.
Despite Ricky’s strong relationship with his wife Abbie, everything comes to breaking point as a result of the increasing stress of both parents’ workloads.
Kris Hitchen as Ricky and Debbie Honeywood as Abbie both provide utterly believable and soul-crushing performances, depicting the harsh reality that huge numbers of people face everyday.
