Sorry We Missed You (2020)



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.

Critic Reviews for Sorry We Missed You

All Critics (84) | Top Critics (16)

Loach in this mode is frankly a "message" director and there are all the usual things to be said against such an approach: that his characters are counters first and people second, and that he rigs the game. But he does all this on a high level.

December 18, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Loach, clearly still buzzing from the success of I, Daniel Blake, is having the time of his life. Don't miss this. You'll be sorry if you do.

November 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Ryan gives a glow, texture and depth to people's faces that are almost Bergmanesque. His work is compassionate even when unsparing.

October 30, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Bleak even by Loach's no-guff standards, but it kicks like a mule.

September 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

As a stripped-down, minutely detailed portrait of the daily grind as back-breaking Sisyphean ordeal, "Sorry We Missed You" is engrossing and bluntly persuasive.

May 19, 2019 | Full Review…

The film's tragedy is that no amount of love and goodwill can save us when the cards are so horribly stacked against us.
