From legendary director Ken Loach, Sorry We Missed You tells the story of Ricky, Abby and his two children who have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. Ricky has skipped from one labouring job to another, while Abby, who loves her work, cares for old people. Despite working longer and harder, they realise they will never have independence or their own home.
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. It’s hard work, and his wife’s job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.
MA15+ In Australian cinemas on Boxing Day, Dec 26.
