Sorry We Missed You

Drama 101 min


Available Friday, April 10 via Virtual Screening Room

This was my favorite film of last year’s FilmColumbia festival, just as I, Daniel Blake, was my favorite film of a previous festival. Loach, one of Britain’s greatest filmmakers, is an unapologetic activist known for his social issue movies like The Wind That Shakes the Barley, and this one, about a lower middle-class husband strapped for cash who is talked into believing that his best chance is to become his own small businessman by managing a “franchise” for an Amazon-like delivery company. The remarkable thing about Loach’s films is that you always know exactly where they’re going to go—the little guy gets screwed—but they work anyway.

“This absorbing and ultimately shattering portrayal of the costs of a late-capitalist system obsessed with convenience, efficiency and nanosecond precision couldn’t be more timely.” — Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
“A lacerating social drama that proceeds to demolish the current corporate line on ‘gig work.’” — Mark Jenkins, NPR
“In their domestic gut-punch of a story, they’ve exposed our new feudalism in a way that feels honest and blisteringly human.” — Robert Abele, LA Times
