MIFF 2019: Sorry We Missed You

(2019, dir. Ken Loach, w/ Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone, Katie Proctor)

MIFF 2019: Sorry We Missed You will finish at approximately 8:18pm.

“Another passionate bulletin from the heart of modern Britain, the land of zero-hours vassalage and service-economy serfdom – a film in the tradition of Loach’s previous work and reaching back to Vittorio De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves.” – The Guardian Notching up more than five decades behind the camera – as well as 16 appearances at MIFF – Ken Loach remains as empathetic and angry as ever in this scorching, heartbreaking rebuke of today’s oppressive working conditions, which comes to Melbourne direct from this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Proud of his work ethic, Ricky takes a freelance courier job not only to make ends meet, or to pay off the debt that he’s been struggling with since the 2008 financial crash, but to provide a better future for his aged-carer wife and their two teenage children. But happiness, prosperity and navigating the gig economy rarely go hand in hand, especially for everyday workers. (IMDB)
