Sorry We Missed You, by Ken Loach

United Kingdom, 2019 (100 minutes). Director: Ken Loach. Cast: Kris Hitchen, Debbie Honeywood, Rhys Stone.

Once again, Ken Loach strives to look at the present in order to understand it. This is the proposal of Sorry, we Missed You, born from the immediacy of its vision, from the speed of a camera that captures life, that captures reality. His characters are precarious workers who experience how their work turns their existence into daily misery that leads to a lifeless life. Urgent cinema, necessary cinema.
