Critic Consensus: Sorry We Missed You may strike some as tending toward the righteously didactic, but director Ken Loach's passionate approach remains effective.

Movie Info

Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. 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.

"Sorry We Missed You" depicts the vise into which many people are forced to put head, hearts, and lives in order to pay the rent and feed their families.

Top Critic

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.

April 2, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Loach, working with a script by Paul Laverty, follows the dramatic principle of Murphy's Law, piling an agonizing litany of undeserved misfortunes on characters left blank.

March 9, 2020 | Full Review…

A lacerating social drama that proceeds to demolish the current corporate line on "gig work."

Top Critic

In their domestic gut-punch of a story, they've exposed our new feudalism in a way that feels honest and blisteringly human.

March 5, 2020 | Full Review…

What makes it one of Loach's best isn't just its rage (which is plentiful) but its compassion (which is overwhelming).
