    Swale Film Society - 'Sorry We Missed You' (15)

    Friday 24th January 2020. Doors open 7pm. Film starts 7.45pm. 

    Three years after I, Daniel Blake, Ken Loach and his long-term collaborators (screenwriter Paul Laverty and producer Rebecca O’Brien) return with another devastatingly powerful portrait of contemporary Britain.

    The 2008 financial crash cost Ricky, a father of two, both his work in construction and his mortgage – but a better future may be around the corner. When a promising opportunity as a freelance delivery driver presents itself, Ricky persuades his wife Abby, who works as a carer for the elderly, to sell the car she uses to rush from “client” to “client” to finance the van’s purchase.

    The film follows the fall out from this decision and implications for Ricky and his family.

    Sorry We Missed You is both an intimate drama and an angry, meticulously researched indictment of a callous, inhumane economic system.

    Director: Ken Loach
